About Waddesdon Manor

Where else in England can you find a French Renaissance château, built in the 19th century, and filled with royal treasures? Waddesdon is famous for its collection of French 18th-century decorative arts and 17th and 18th-century paintings.

Further treasures await outside, with the lovingly restored Victorian formal gardens - the topiary and fountains of the Parterre - and the sweeping wooded parkland beyond.
