    Waddesdon Manor
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    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.

We're so glad that you enjoyed your trip to Waddesdon Manor. I often like to try out the wine shop too! Yes at Christmas time the house is almost entirely transformed and well worth a visit.

This is the most amazing castle we have visited on our trip. It is truly magnificent so much to see and the gardens are a delight. You need to book if you want to see the inside of the Manor and it gets very booked up, you can go around the Manor and gardens if the Manor tours
