It is also intended to be a ‘landmark, orientation point and all-weather shelter’ and will be operational by mid August.

Sarah Weir, CEO at Waddesdon, who opened the pavillion with Lord Rothschild, said: “We are delighted to be able to celebrate the handover of the new Waddesdon welcome ticketing pavilion from our contractors Carmody Groarke and Stephen Russell.

“This marks the final stage in the development of our visitor car park and will help to preserve the heritage of Waddesdon Manor for visitors in many years to come.

“The ticketing pavilion sits beautifully and unobtrusively in the landscape, and we look forward to seeing our visitors making use of this new facility in the very near future.”
