A Rothschild Treasury:
This new permanent gallery houses more than 300 objects made from rare and precious materials, many on display for the first time. From a 1st-century cameo of Augustus Caesar’s grandson, to a microscope used by entomologist and flea expert Charles Rothschild, via jewellry given as presents from Queen Victoria, this new gallery displays items that celebrate the Rothschild family as collectors of extraordinary objects.
Roses from my Garden:
In the Coach House Gallery from 28 March see Nick Knight's Roses from my Garden, a romantic display of large-scale painterly photographs by this British fashion photographer.
With so much to do Waddesdon makes the perfect day out at any time of the year and can easily be combined with the Cotswolds, Stratford upon Avon and Oxford.
