Winter light

A walking trail

As daylight fades to dusk, visitors can enjoy state-of-the-art animations and light installations, taking you on an enchanted journey through Waddesdon’s grounds.

This walking trail will begin at the stables and lead you to the front of the manor, around the aviary gardens and back towards the woodland playground, where you will encounter a series of light pieces that highlight the trees and continue the carnival feel.

To begin the walking winter light trail, please leave the bus at the stables bus stop.

Meet 13 characters along the path. Each silhouette, drawn from the collections at Waddesdon, has its own story to tell with sounds that bring them to life. Hear the ice-skaters at a Christmas market, be entertained by the music from royal spectacles such as the Ballet de la Nuit (Ballet of the Night) and feel the spirit of Christmas with traditional carols, church bells and festivities.
