Information for teachers

We are happy to help with any queries you might have and are able to provide bespoke sessions tailored to your needs.

Self-led and bespoke sessions

Waddesdon is available all year round for self-led visits, where you can explore our grounds, including our Aviary and Woodland Playground. Entry is free with Education Group Membership.

Fancy a visit but none of our workshops quite hit the spot? We will happily write a bespoke session for you to fit in with your topic. We have delivered sessions on subjects as varied as the Titanic, India and Circles, so the possibilities are endless!
