The days are lighter and longer so it's a great time to be in the garden. We've several walks suitable for most abilities or just come and enjoy a relaxed lunch at the Stables Café or afternoon tea in the Manor Restaurant. We've planted up our summer bedding scheme and with a little more sunshine the colours will soon be vibrant and bright.
Our landscaped grounds with sculptures and fountains are waiting for you to explore, find out which area of the Gardens to discover first.

Seasons in the Garden
This years theme for the carpet bedding is a section of the Savonnerie carpet, currently displayed in the Red Drawing room. The Parterre will be planted up with yellow begonias, gold marigolds and light blue petunias. In the Aviary garden you'll see blue heliotrope, ageratuum and cream marigolds. The Rose garden will be full of flower and scent.
July and August:
The ornamental beds will be looking at their best during the summer months, with the water plants and marginals in Frog Fountain also looking nice.
The bedding will still be looking good, especially in Tropical Mound and the Bachelors' Wing. Autumn crocus will start to be in flower below the Parterre, and the trees in the garden will be changing colour, with conkers beginning to fall.
We hold some great garden events here at Waddesdon, from hands on activities to talks and presentations. Search our event calendar by putting 'house and garden' as the search term.
