Built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, this impressive 19th century estate combines one man’s grand vision of architecture, art and gardens.
Over a century ago, Waddesdon Manor was created to delight the friends of the Baron. Today, the house and grounds are open to visitors so that they too can appreciate the architecture, art collections and gardens.
The ground floor of the house includes the Red and Grey Drawing Rooms where guests would assemble for dinner and Baron Ferdinand’s private apartment. The first floor introduces the Blue Dining Room and the White Drawing Room that offers stunning views across the Vale of Aylesbury.
The art collection on display was primarily built during the 19th century but the collections continue to grow today thanks to the Rothschild family trusts.
Waddesdon also plays host to various art exhibitions which can be viewed in the garden or in the Coach House depending on the artist and time of year.
