  • What a lovely event! I usually go to Waddesdon so did not know what to expect, but this Christmas event exceeded my expectations and was just magical. Well organised. Amazing light trail with music...

  • We had a really lovely time at Wimpole today and I’d thoroughly recommend it for a family outdoor outing on a day when the weather is fine. The oak trees are magnificent and still clad in tawny...

  • Despite it being a grey day, I enjoyed my visit to the estate and inside the house. I loved the long view towards London and inside the house was interesting as well with some lovely rooms. There is plenty to do on the estate and it has the traditional National Trust tearoom and cafe which we enjoyed using.
  • Lovely site with great walks and things to do for all the family. Farm, garden and the hall itself are interesting. All the paths are well looked after with only steps into the house will affect wheel chair users.
