See the bedroom where Queen Victoria rested. Explore the exhibition of the Rothschild family and superb Sèvres collection. Admire the silver dinner service made for George III. And view our newly acquired paintings and a stunning contemporary chandelier.
The first floor was originally home to eight bedroom suites and eight small bedrooms for visiting ladies’ maids. Today there are three remaining bedroom suites, including the State Bedroom. This is where Queen Victoria took a nap during her visit to Waddesdon in May 1890.
Some of the suites and rooms are now used for exhibitions and entertaining. You'll find the collection of Sèvres porcelain in the West Wing - this rolling exhibition often changes to examine aspects of porcelain manufacture and design.
In the Family Room, learn about the history of the European-wide Rothschild family and the people who created and cared for Waddesdon.
The Bakst Room houses a set of seven panels depicting the story of Sleeping Beauty - painted by the theatre designer, Léon Bakst, for Mr and Mrs James de Rothschild's London dining room.
From the windows of the White Drawing Room, there are stunning views across the Parterre and the Vale of Aylesbury. In the room itself, the silver service made for George III's use in Hanover is on display. And don't miss Ingo Maurer's exploding porcelain chandelier, Porca Miseria in the Blue Dining Room, commissioned by Lord Rothschild in 2003.
