Putting the house to bed tour


Whilst closed during the winter months, enjoy a rare opportunity to discover how the house and its collection are 'put to bed' and cared for by our team of conservation stewards.

During this 60 minute tour, explore the house in its 'put to bed' state with a knowledgeable Waddesdon guide. As well as a behind-the-scenes look at the rooms in the house, you will be able to see inside the collection stores, learn about the conservation techniques used to care for the collection and view the academic apartments, which are never normally open to the public.

Tours run at 11am & 1pm on Saturdays & Sundays from 3-25 February. £15 plus normal grounds admission. We recommend booking in advance.
