Waddesdon Manor - National Trust
Waddesdon Manor, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
Four generations of the Rothschild family have shaped and enhanced this house. This renaissance-style château was built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild to display his outstanding collection of art treasures and to entertain the fashionable world. The 45 rooms on view combine the highest quality French furniture and decorative arts from the 18th century with superb English portraits and Dutch Old Masters. The Victorian garden is considered one of the finest in Britain with its parterre, seasonal displays, fountains and statuary. At its heart lies the aviary, stocked with species once part of Baron Ferdinand's collection. Visit the new contemporary art gallery in the Coach House at the Stables.
One hundred and thirty years ago this house and its setting were created to delight and surprise the small circle of Baron Ferdinand's friends. More than 300,000 visitors a year now come to Waddesdon to appreciate the exceptional art collections.
