COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

To ensure we operate safely and responsibly, protecting visitors and staff, we are further reducing the number of visitors each day and require everyone to pre-book one-hour arrival timeslots, including National Trust members and local resident pass holders.

Waddesdon is open Wed-Sun, 10am-5pm. Advance booking essential.

Safety is our priority, please respect other visitors by maintaining social distance and regulations about household mixing. Visitor numbers are reduced and all visitors, including National Trust members who have free admission, need to book an arrival time slot to manage numbers on site.

  • Do not visit if a member of your household has had any Covid-19 symptoms in the last 10 days
  • Check Government regulations about minimising travel and contact with other households here>
  • Follow any instructional signage indicating social distance spacing, walking routes etc
  • Please respect other visitors by stepping off pathways where they are narrow
  • Bring a face covering with you. Coverings must be worn in toilets, on buses, in all indoor areas and when buying takeaway food (unless you are exempt)
  • Wash your hands before you come and during your visit. Please bring your own hand sanitiser. Hand sanitiser is available outside toilets and at the top and bottom of the Woodland Playground
