Waddesdon Manor

Visit the 18th century stately home with Chiltern Railways

  • Waddesdon Manor was built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild between 1874 and 1885 to display his collection of arts and to entertain the fashionable world. Opened to the public in 1959, Waddesdon Manor is managed by the Rothschild Foundation, a family charitable trust, on behalf of the National Trust, who took over ownership in 1957. It’s home to the Rothschild Collections of paintings, sculpture and decorative arts.
  • Waddesdon is open Wed-Sun, 10am-5pm (last admission 3pm). Advance booking of Grounds admission, buses and parking is essential.
