Waddesdon Manor

East Wing & Bachelors’ Wing, Gardens, Aviary, Restaurants, Winter Light at Waddesdon: Bruce Munro, and Lights and Legends our theme in the House.

11 Nov-3 January 2016, including Mondays 21 & 28, Tuesdays 22 & 29 December. (Closed 24-26 December). 10am-5pm.

Later opening each Fri, Sat and Sun until 7pm

Make sure you catch our Winter Light son et lumiere illuminating the front of the house, from 4pm each day.

Our theme this year is Lights and Legends - decorations will reflect myths, stories and rituals from around the world, some traditional, some contemporary and some exotic but all celebrating light at this festive time of year. Outside, artist Bruce Munro will create a large piece of immersive, light art which will take you on a sensory journey through one of the most beautiful parts of the garden, beyond the Aviary. This is the final year of Bruce Munro's Waddesdon residency, so not to be missed. There will also be a light show, Transformation, projected on the front of the House too. On the hour and half hour each day from dusk this dramatic son et lumière devised by Woodroffe Bassett, will bathe the Manor's ornate façade in rainbow colours. Two giant sculptures, Lafite, by artist Joana Vasconcelos, in the form of candlesticks made of Rothschild Lafite wine bottles, new this year in front of the House, will also be lit up.
