Our Christmas trip this year will be to the Rothschild Estate of Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.
It will be on Thursday 30th November 2023, and it will cost £50.
The trip will include:
We will be leaving Bedford at around 10.30am and returning by 7pm, final timings to be confirmed nearer to the day. Pick up will be from the Centre and Aspects Leisure Park Bedford.
We should arrive at Waddesdon by 12pm. Entry to the Manor will be at 1 30pm and we will be setting off for home at around 5.15pm. Slightly later than normal so that we can catch a glimpse of the beautiful illuminations at nighttime.
In summary on the day, you will be able to view the decorated rooms in the French Renaissance-style chateau and see the magical displays in the East Wing and Bachelors Wing. There will be the opportunity to visit the Christmas Fair on the Manor Drive, soak up the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas with hand selected stalls all housed in charming wooden chalets, surrounded by twinkling trees. You will have the chance to purchase delicious hot food at the Food Village, sample some mulled wine or a rich hot chocolate and enjoy the captivating illuminations on the grounds which include the Light Trail, The Manor façade projections, and The Lights that Dance in the Night at the Coach House Gallery. These state-of-the-art bespoke projections are by celebrated artist Jamie Shiels, who has worked on projects at Buckingham Palace, The National Gallery and the 2012 London Olympics!
This trip will most certainly be extremely popular, so book today to avoid disappointment!
