We are pleased to invite our buyer members to Fam Trip taking place on Thursday 20 July 2023, kindly hosted by the Waddesdon Manor.
Waddesdon Manor is a Renaissance-style chateau in the heart of the Chilterns, housing one of the finest collections of French 18th century decorative arts in the world. The manor itself is situated within beautiful landscaped Victorian gardens with a Parterre, seasonal displays, historic Italian statuary and breath-taking views. There is an ornate Rococo-style Aviary housing rare and endangered birds and a gift and wine shop selling unique, unrivalled Rothschild wines.
On a day out to Waddesdon you will discover richly decorated interiors, fabulous art treasures, beautiful displays and sweeping landscapes.
You will also get the opportunity to explore Joana Vasconcelos’ extraordinary Wedding Cake, an immersive art installation opening this summer in the grounds at Waddesdon. The Wedding Cake is a 12-metre-tall ceramic sculptural pavilion in the form of a three-tiered cake and is a major new Rothschild Foundation commission from celebrated Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. Visitors will have the opportunity to step inside this astonishing work of art and enjoy a unique, richly sensory experience.
