Christmas is always a special time at Waddesdon and this year is no exception. Look out for the iced gingerbread model of the Manor created by The Biscuiteers, light shows from dusk and new Wigwam cafe. Note our Christmas Fair is now closed.
Some of the rooms in the house are decorated specially for Christmas (others are closed for conservation and cleaning.)
Advance house tickets are now sold out, but 300 day tickets are available from the on-site ticket office from 11am each day on a first-come basis.
- wrap up warmly
- the Powerhouse near the main Manor Shop kiosk offers a warm place to sit and snack
- if possible bring a torch as some paths have limited lighting, especially if you want to walk back to the car park at dusk to avoid waiting for the shuttle bus. The path is part-lit and can be muddy in places, it takes about 15 minutes to walk
- make a note of where you park – at busy weekend times we are using ‘overflow’ car parking
Somewhere warm to sit and snack
The Powerhouse is a heated indoor space you can take hot drinks and sit inside, feed a young baby or get children out of the cold. Opposite the Manor shop courtyard. Open 11am-6pm.
