Waddesdon Manor was built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild between 1874 and 1885 to display his collection of arts and to entertain his friends. It is now open to the public and we welcome thousands of visitors each year who come to appreciate the exceptional architecture, art collections and gardens.
Christmas in the house
From 22 November until 1 January, the East Wing of the house is open and festively decorated for Christmas with sparkling installations and soundscapes inspired by classic childhood tales. Admission tickets are on sale for timed entry and all visitors must pre-book, including National Trust members. A special admission fee applies to all visitors.
During the Christmas season (until 1 Jan) the East Wing of the house is festively decorated. The rest of the house is ‘put to bed’ so our dedicated team of stewards can carry out the essential cleaning and conservation work that keeps it in such excellent condition. The house reopens fully in March 2024.
