Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Took my grandchildren (12 & * years old) to visit during the holidays. Great day out and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. KIds and I were fascinated by all the exhibits. INcredible to think that were thousands of people working here in WW2 in conditions of utmost secrecy.

    This is a special place, we wandered along all the paths and there was lots to see. Many different trains come and go along the railtracks through the various scenes. They stop at stations and set off again into the distance. The structures are well built and you can see that there are renovations carried out over time.
    The various scenarios are well thought out and most with local influences.
    There's a cafe for basic food and to have a sit down plus an Ice Cream shack, picnic tables are provided too.
    There's a people-sized small train too (small extra charge) which takes you on what feels like endless loops through the gardens.
    Parking space is not great but there are people directing you to a vacant space, we were sent to a nearby churchyard, which was fine.

    We are NT members and luckily live fairly close so we come here often. The grounds here always look fantastic- the staff are always helpful and polite and the food is amazing wherever you eat . Coffee and cakes are particularly good!! . I cannot fault waddesdon manor on anything!!
    We finally got to see the wedding cake yesterday which is not covered by your NT membership but you do get a discount ( but please do not be discouraged by this !) well all I can say is it is AMAZING some parts are not available on it yet but you will not notice!! . Robert was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and helpful in every way.. we were a small group so managed to get some fantastic photos..
    Thank you waddesdon for another fantastic day out … ps Rothschild wine is also very palatable!!
    See you soon!!
    Julie n Phil. ;)

    We booked the family session and had a fantastic time. All the staff at the centre were super friendly and welcoming. Our instructor Alex was great and explained everything as we went along, she started us on the basic walls and then worked us up to more challenging with absolutely no pressure to get all the way to the top on any of them. In addition to climbing we got shown how to belay for the each other which was useful. There’s a huge range of walls at the centre and we got to finish our session on bouldering which we didn’t realise was included but was also great fun. The session was extremely good value for money and we will definitely be back!

    Visited on a Sunday and what an enjoyable event. Jess & Alice were super informative, friendly, chatty and knowledgeable. It is well organised, ran smoothly and a delight to see what they do. The groups are big enough to feel social but not so big that you feel overwhelmed or crowded. The animals are all well looked after and very friendly. Would recommend for a nice day out, took about 2-3 hours but time flew by.

    Amazing place for children and adults. So much to do from shows, animal feeding tractor rides and play areas for children. The animals are so lovely and looked after so well. You can easily stay all day as there is so much to do and space for the children to play. Staff are friendly and professional. We will be back!

    Hughenden Manor was the home of Benjamin Disraeli so a large amount of information about him. It was also the home of the map makers during WWII so a fascinating display about that. The gardens are lovely and there are good walks around the park. A small cafe which gets very busy at lunchtime and also a coffee kiosk. You need to pay or show your membership cards on the drive in. The car park is at the top of the hill. A two paw print place so you can take dogs in the gardens, park and outside the cafe but not in the house.

    There is lots to see and enjoy at this museum. In every room or area, children are allowed to touch and explore. The volunteers and staff are all amazing. It is a wonderful museum and I would highly recommend!

    Our visit to the National Museum of Computing was specifically to attend the Bombe and Colossus demonstrations. Two of my party of four had not been for a number of years and being mathematicians and engineers had a particular interest. Both demonstrations were excellent; the Colossus demonstrators remaining beyond closing time to continue answering questions. The Bombe demo was amazing. I have heard several Bombe demos although not for a couple of years at least. This recent demo was given by Frank Falcon and was probably the best Bombe demo I have ever attended. It was detailed and very clear and could be understood by, and satisfy, anyone of whatever level of prior knowledge. Everyone in my group was of the same opinion. Many congratulations to Frank.
