Waddesdon Manor


Discover the Beautiful Waddesdon Manor and gardens Waddesdon Manor and gardens were bequeathed to the National Trust by the Rothschilds in 1957. The garden today is essentially the one laid out by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild and his French landscape designer Elie Laine. It is one of the finest Victorian gardens in Britain with a parterre, colourful shrubs, rose garden and specimen trees. A rococo-style aviary houses exotic birds and is known for breeding endangered species. The garden can be enjoyed at any season with its wild flowers, vibrant, immaculately maintained seasonal bedding displays, including carpet bedding, walks, fountains and statuary. Guided walks take place from April to September.
