The award-winning Christmas extravaganza at Waddesdon, the Rothschild House and Gardens in Buckinghamshire, is back this winter with a brand new route that will light up the formal Parterre for the first time.

From November, visitors can stroll under the stars in a landscape that’s come alive with light, while enjoying a mulled wine from the Christmas Fair. Highlights include a sound and light display projected onto the Manor’s façade.

Simon Wales, Waddesdon’s CEO says: “This year has been another challenging one for everybody, but we hope to end things on a high note by bringing a bit of magic to Waddesdon this Christmas: it comes into its own during the festive season.”

Prices from: £17 adult, £8.50 child. Full details of prices and online booking details can be found at www.waddesdon.org.uk/christmas
