Dates for your Diary
Mon Aug 20th OPEN DAY at the Cranleigh Village Hall

To find out about the activities we offer
and sign-up for those you may be interested in.

Will be held in the Cranleigh Village Sports & Social Club in Parsonage Road, Cranleigh.

National Trust’s Waddesdon Manor is a Grade 1 listed house built in the style of a French chateau for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild between 1874 and 1889. Waddesdon’s 120 acres of grounds and its contents were bequeathed to the National Trust in 1957 and it is one of their most visited properties and won Visit England’s Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2017.

We will have a timed entry to the Manor house which has extensive collections of 18th century art, tapestries, furniture, ceramics and other Renaissance treasures belonging to the Rothschild family. The gardens, also Grade 1 listed, boast beautifully laid out flower beds, many fine statues and fountains, 18th century sculptures and an Aviary. There is also rolling parkland with magnificent woodland and picturesque views.

You will be free to explore on your own, however, there are multimedia guides available at a cost of £3 each should you wish to hear more information. The Manor restaurant is open for drinks and snacks, lunch and afternoon tea, so plenty of opportunity for you to purchase refreshments during the day. Entry is free of charge for National Trust, RHS and Art Fund members so please bring along your cards.

Our coach will drop us in the designated park, which is approximately 100m from the house. We aim to arrive at Waddesdon by 11am and will leave again at 4pm.
