Waddesdon Manor offers virtual tours

Waddesdon Manor have made sure you can still access culture, history and art while we're staying indoors.

Waddesdon Manor is one of many places that have closed their doors to try and help reduce the spread of coronavirus, but staff there have done their best to bring the manor to us!

They're offering virtual tours online as well as access to their art collection, family fun and even garden trails online!
