Christmas at Waddesdon is back for 2020 with magical lights and the gardens aglow, plus a 30-day long Christmas Fair to delight shoppers. Join us at Waddesdon for festive fun in an enchanting outdoor extravaganza to brighten the end of the year.
Christmas at Waddesdon will take place between 14th November 2020 – 3rd January 2021, 12pm - 7.30pm.
As twilight falls, Waddesdon’s extraordinary landscape and woodland is brought to life using a variety of state-of-the-art effects combined with bespoke light installations. You’ll also be treated to the spectacle of the Manor’s façade illuminated with dancing lights set to music.
Follow the Winter Light trail and see the Pleasure Grounds transformed with dramatic colour and playful installations. Stroll under the stars beneath illuminated tree canopies. Look out for the valley of flickering flames, and dozens of suspended orbs in a walk-through musical light show.
Wander down the woodland walk to the Stables and find the route illuminated with work created by children from around 35 local schools on a theme of hope, called ‘When you wish upon a star’. Once at the Stables, capture the perfect festive moment in giant 20ft twinkling baubles and encounter Parallels, an immersive installation of colourful light pipes that twist and tip in the Coach House.
Shop for handmade gifts, decorations and festive foods at the popular Christmas Fair (14th November – 23rd December, 12pm - 7pm). Set amongst festooned trees and housed in charming wooden chalets, browse over 80 hand-selected artisan stalls. So with all this and more, why not soak up the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas and indulge in scrumptious food and mulled wine at the market.
Have yourself an even merrier little Christmas by booking an afternoon tea at the Manor Restaurant. Created in-house by Craig, Waddesdon's talented head pâtissier, afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate your visit to Waddesdon.
