More about Waddesdon

The collection, built by successive members of the Rothschild dynasty, includes Dutch Masters, works by Reynolds, Gainsborough and others, and outstanding furniture.

The house was created over a century ago to entertain Baron Ferdinand's circle of friends. Today it is home to exceptional architecture, art collections and gardens. Some of the house's magnificent bedroom suites have been converted into exhibition spaces, which host an annual rotation of displays highlighting various aspects of the Waddesdon collection.
