Discover the Beautiful Waddesdon Manor
To visit the glorious faux French chateau that is Waddesdon Manor is a lesson in how the gilded rich used to live their lives. Built for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the late 19th century, its downstairs reception rooms are lavishly furnished to host glittering parties. Besides that there are smoking and billiard rooms to accommodate the male guests, rooms especially reserved for reading the papers and letter writing and a huge dining room with a table laid in exquisite detail. And, of course, there are plenty of historically important collections to admire – the silver dinner service made for George III, the Sevres porcelain in the West Wing, the arms and armour display and a whole host of fabulous portraits and paintings. But there's so much more - floor upon floor of historic treasures await you. Do not miss out on the grounds either – Ferdinand de Rothschild created an amazing garden with acres of stunning landscaped grounds to explore.
