Designed to resemble a French chateau, Waddesdon Manor was built in the late 19th century for the Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild.
The Grade 1 listed building is about 6 miles from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, near Waddesdon village. The house is known for its valuable art collection, including paintings, tapestries, furniture and ceramics which have been added to over the years, as well as its wine cellars, with about 15,000 bottles.
The extensive gardens include an aviary with exotic birds, and a water garden, formal French gardens, along with statues and sculpted 3D carpet bedding.
The manor operates a timed entry system, and offers accommodation in the adjoining Five Arrows Hotel.Places nearby:
