Full description
You’ll be met by your guide at the agreed location and begin the drive by private car to Waddesdon Manor on this 6-hour tour.

Now open to the public and set amid stunning hilltop gardens, the unique French style chateau was the one-time home of the wealthy Rothschild family. This is very much a trip for those wanting to experience an authentic day out in the English countryside.

Waddesdon is one of the most visited estates in the country and once there, you'll understand why. Marvel at the interior of the house and its lavishly decorated rooms filled with fine furnishings and works of art.

The gardens are also a sight to behold, and the views from the gardens stretch for miles over the plains. See the outdoor aviary with birds from around the world, rose gardens, formal gardens with fountains, and caves, and take the land-train down the hill to the stable block and café.

Complimentary tea or coffee and soft drinks are provided.
