Waddesdon Manor - Christmas Illuminations
The front of Waddesdon Manor illuminated by floodlights and Christmas lights with twinkling Christmas trees in front of it. Near Christmas the manor is open late into the evening so that the illuminations can be seen at their best.

Waddesdon Manor
Waddesdon Manor is a country house in the village of Waddesdon, in Buckinghamshire. The house was built in the Neo-Renaissance style of a French château between 1874 and 1889 for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild (1839–1898). The last member of the Rothschild family to own Waddesdon was James de Rothschild. He bequeathed the house and its contents to the National Trust in 1957.

The house was built on a barren hilltop overlooking Waddesdon village. In 2007–08 it was the National Trust's second most visited paid-entry property, with 386,544 visitors. LinkExternal link
