Grounds visits in January

Waddesdon will open Wed-Sun for daytime local outdoor exercise only. Advance booking essential.

Following the latest lockdown regulations, we are amending our opening hours from 6 January and will now be open from 10am-4pm (last admission 2pm). This is to provide local people with an opportunity to exercise in the fresh air on their own, with their household/bubble or with one person from another household.

Safety is our priority, please respect other visitors by maintaining social distance and do not arrange to meet other people at Waddesdon. Visitor numbers are reduced and all visitors, including National Trust members who have free admission, need to book an arrival time slot to manage numbers on site.

Book tickets

Takeaway food and drink will be available, but no seating may be provided near these outlets. Toilets will be open. However, the House, Aviary, indoor restaurant and cafe, cellars and shop will be closed in line with Government guidance.

Unfortunately, the light trails and interactive features we had hoped to keep open, must now close.

Gift Aid prices and donations

Your support really makes a difference to us. All proceeds from admission tickets and events go towards the upkeep of Waddesdon Manor.

The Gift Aid admission scheme includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid admission allows us to reclaim tax on the whole of the amount paid – an extra 25 per cent. An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth up to £3 to us.

National Trust members

Admission during our main season (March-October) is free for National Trust members, but must now be booked in advance and membership cards brought to be shown on entry.

Shuttle buses, Premium parking, events like Summer Fest, Chilli Fest, Christmas, Winter Light and some special exhibitions may attract a small additional charge for all visitors including members. Membership does not include free admission to evening events including outdoor theatre, cinema and concerts.
