Waddesdon opening delayed

Waddesdon Manor has postponed opening the house and exhibitions to meet government recommendations to minimise transmission of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

However, knowing that a walk outdoors in beautiful surrounding can positively help health and well-being, it is opening the grounds and gardens for visitors to make free, fully independent visits from Saturday 21 March.

It will open the coffee bar for take-away hot drinks and snacks and the bar and restaurant at the Five Arrows will be serving meals from Friday to Sunday.

Due to limited staffing, they will not be opening the visitor information centre; there will be no guided walks and talks; and the wine cellars, restaurants and shops will be closed.

It is hoped to be able to open the house, A Rothschild Treasury, Collecting Stories exhibitions and Roses from my Garden exhibition of Nick Knight’s photographs in the Coach House Gallery in a few weeks. Reopening information will be published as soon as possible.

The health and well-being of visitors and staff are its highest priority and people are asked to check the Waddesdon website for latest updates. https://waddesdon.org.uk/
