The programmed visit to Waddesdon Manor has been arranged for Thursday 28th September. A Lodge’s coach (with toilet) will leave The Bell at 9.00am and The Leas at 9.05am, returning at approximately 6.30pm.

Waddesdon Manor, which is owned by The National Trust, is a classic French Loire style chateau, reproduced in the 1870s by Ferdinand Rothschild on a hill in the Buckinghamshire countryside. This magnificent palace, set in stunning gardens and parkland, has all the characteristic features of a Loire chateau with its pinnacles, mansard roofs, dormer windows, massive chimneys and staircase towers. Within is all the grandeur and elegance of classic Louis XIV interiors, many transported from Paris when the city was redeveloped in the 1870s. Simply put “seeing is believing”.

Arrival is programmed for 10.30am, traffic permitting. The coach will drop us off at The North Fountain, which is a short walk from the Manor and the refreshment facilities. There are four wheelchairs for guests’ use but these cannot be pre-booked.

Entry to the house and grounds is free for National Trust Members and £21.40 for non-members. A private tour of the house can be arranged for us at 11.00am at a charge of £12 per person. The house opens to the public at midday.
