Thursday 7th/Friday 8th December 2017

Morning departure for Waddesdon Manor stopping for a short visit to Swindon Outlet for either a quick look around, coffee/early lunch.

With huge Christmas trees in front of the House and at the Stables, all decorated with thousands of lights Waddesdon should be looking stunning. Each year the East Wing and Bachelors' Wing at Waddesdon Manor which we have timed tickets for are beautifully decorated to reflect a chosen theme.

There's plenty to see & enjoy in the Gardens at Waddesdon this Christmas. From traditional real pine Christmas trees placed all around the Gardens. Standing to attention at the main entrance you'll see two enormous Christmas trees, beautifully lit and twinkling as the light begins to fade. There are more stunning trees all around the gardens creating a magical Christmas atmosphere & contemporary light sculptures hidden throughout the gardens & the front of the house will be lit up.

The Christmas Gift & Food Fair is also on with little chalets selling their wares.

Our hotel for the night is the 4* Hilton Reading hotel.
