Where does my money go?
All ticket and donation income goes directly towards the upkeep, conservation and enhancement of the house, collections and landscape at Waddesdon, which we are committed to preserving for future generations to enjoy. We are very grateful to every visitor who helps us by purchasing an entry ticket, attending an event or spending in our retail or catering outlets. Funds raised go towards a range of projects, for example, conserving an important historical desk and restoring some of the artificial Pulham rockwork in the gardens.
