The moment Ferdinand de Rothschild secured his inheritance in 1974, he secured his chosen piece of land in Buckinghamshire and the design and building
work began on the stunning Waddesdon Manor.
Every member of the Rothschild family has made their mark on the Waddesdon estate that we see today, from Alice’s love of armoury and gardens to James
and Dorothy’s passion for horses and golf. The result is an incredible collection of antiquities in the house and fascinating grounds and gardens.
Waddesdon is now managed by the Rothschild Trust in conjunction with the National Trust, resulting in a rather special experience for visitors. You will enjoy fine cuisine, both for lunch and afternoon tea, in the Manor Restaurant, accompanied by a selection of Rothschild wines.
