Waddesdon Manor is a rustic home within the village of Waddesdon, in Buckinghamshire, England. The home was constructed within the Neo-Renaissance fashion of a French château between 1874 and 1889 for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild. Since this was the popular fashion of the Rothschilds it turned also referred to as the Goût Rothschild. The home, set in formal gardens and an English panorama park, was constructed on a barren hilltop overlooking Waddesdon village.
The final member of the Rothschild household to personal Waddesdon was James de Rothschild. He bequeathed the home and its contents to the Nationwide Belief in 1957. In the present day, following an intensive restoration, it’s administered by a Rothschild charitable belief that’s overseen by Jacob Rothschild, 4th Baron Rothschild. In 2007–08 it was the Nationwide Belief’s second most visited paid-entry property, with 386,544 guests.
