Christmas at Waddesdon for groups

Christmas at Waddesdon is back! 

Christmas is always a special time of year at Waddesdon and the perfect place to bring your group for a festive day out.

This year, Waddesdon transforms into a magical wonderland inspired by classic British tales. Inside the house, be transported as you explore the Mad Hatters tea party, travel to the Ice Queens lair and discover Captain Hooks treasure cave! Outside, the Manor’s façade will come to life with bespoke projections and Waddesdon’s spectacular landscape will be lit with a kaleidoscope of colour, lights and music along a light trail through the grounds. Don’t forget to soak up the sights and sounds of the Christmas Fair and pick up a festive treat from the Food Village. Make it even more special with a Christmas lunch at the Five Arrows Hotel.
