Waddesdon Manor
Prices at Waddesdon Manor Aylesbury from £15.00 per adult Waddesdon Manor Aylesbury was built (1874-89) by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild to display his outstanding collection of art treasures and to entertain the fashionable world. It was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1957 and opened to the public two years later. The 45 rooms on view combine the highest quality French furniture and decorative arts from the 18th century with magnificent English portraits and Dutch Old Masters. The Victorian garden is considered one of the finest in Britain, famous for its Parterre, seasonal displays, shady walks and views, fountains and statuary. At its heart lies the Aviary, stocked with species that were once part of Baron Ferdinand’s collection. The Wine Cellars, modelled on the private cellars at Château Lafite-Rothschild contain thousands of bottles of Rothschild wines dating back to 1868. June 2011 saw the launch of Windmill Hill, a new building complex on the Waddesdon Estate that will serve as a research and archive centre for Waddesdon and a home for the philanthropic work of the Rothschild Foundation. Top quality food and wines are served throughout the day in the licensed restaurants, and the shops offer a superb range of gifts and wines, many of which are unique to Waddesdon. Conveniently situated to London, Oxford and Milton Keynes, Waddesdon offers a memorable day out for all the family.
