Your visit


Entry to the house is by timed ticket only for all visitors, including National Trust members.
2018 house tickets are now on sale online and over the phone. Your Grounds ticket is valid for the whole day 10am-5pm.

During busy weekends and holiday periods the timed ticket slots for the house can sell out, so it’s best to book in advance. Last house entry 3.10pm.

Gift Aid prices and donations

Your support really makes a difference to us. All proceeds from admission tickets and events go towards the upkeep of Waddesdon Manor.

The Gift Aid admission scheme includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid admission allows us to reclaim tax on the whole of the amount paid – an extra 25 per cent. An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth up to £3 to us. If you’d like to pay our standard entry rates these are displayed below, at our property and under (prices) at:
