Waddesdon awarded prestigious VisitEngland Gold accolade for third year in a row

Update about the Coronavirus:

National Trust have taken the decision to close all their car parks, to further attempt to help restrict the spread of coronavirus. They encourage everyone to stay local, observe social distancing and do not travel:

They’ll be doing everything they can to bring nature, beauty and history to your homes in the coming weeks. They’ll ensure the places they care for on behalf of the nation can remain open for business virtually while we’re temporarily closed, through our social media feeds, website, podcasts and video. They appreciate your support and we’ll be staying in touch with our members throughout this difficult time.

We’re delighted to share the news that Waddesdon Manor has been awarded a VisitEngland Gold Accolade for the third year running.

The national scheme was designed to celebrate excellence within the visitor attraction sector, and showcase businesses that go the extra mile to provide a high quality day out.

VisitEngland said ‘This accolade is testament to the high standards achieved, which the assessor felt were truly deserving of recognition.’

Other local winners include Bletchley Park, who were also awarded a Gold accolade, and the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, who received an award for ‘Best Told Story’.

Simon Wales, Chief Operating Officer at Waddesdon, said ‘we are honoured to have been awarded the VisitEngland Gold accolade. We welcomed over 460,000 visitors last year, and this recognition means so much to all the staff and volunteers whose commitment makes Waddesdon what it is today. The team work tirelessly to ensure all visitors experience a day steeped in heritage and history that they won’t forget.’
