If you enjoy walking, there are plenty of routes to chose from in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor.
For the third year running Waddesdon is involved in The Great British Walk, a festival supported by the National Trust.
And this year three new walks have been created at Waddesdon to encourage people to get out and about and to showcase parts of the gardens that are alightly off the beaten track.
The Gardens Walk, which takes approximately 30 minutes, allows you to explore the formal gardens and aviary at Waddesdon.
The walk provides splendid views of both the gardens and house, whilst providing information about the history of the gardens and their current management.
It is suitable for all ages, abilities, wheelchair users and pushchairs.
The Baron’s Walk was rediscovered in 2001 and was the route by which plants were brought from the glasshouses at the bottom of the hill (demolished in the 1960s) to the parterre.
This is a longer walk lasting 45 minutes and takes in the wider, less formal areas of the grounds.
It has sections that are uneven under foot and moderate gradients both up and downhill, and may therefore not be suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Miss Alice’s Drive Woodland Walk follows in the footsteps of Miss Alice de Rothschild and takes in a trail through the woodland.
Here you can hunt for bugs, spot lots of wildlife and walk across stepping stones.
This walk is ideal for all the family. Miss Alice’s Drive is located at the top of the woodland playground.
All three walks can be completed during the normal opening times 10am-5pm and normal admission charges apply.
Tickets for adult entry to the grounds cost £8, and for children £4.
A family ticket to the grounds can be purchased for £20.
Free leaflets are provided for these new walks.
There are also a selection of guided walks in the grounds on specific days.
These include walks around the manor gardens as well as a walk around the beautiful private water features at the dairy.
The walking festival at the manor lasts until Sunday November 1.
