Alice's Wonderlands

Waddesdon, Aylesbury
22 March - 29 October 2023

Waddesdon Manor celebrates the independent spirit of Alice de Rothschild (1847–1922), the former owner of the magnificent Buckinghamshire chateau.

Born in Frankfurt, Alice moved to England along with her brother and they created neighbouring estates in the English countryside. Discover the story of the expert gardener and collector of Renaissance art who inherited Waddesdon Manor from her brother Ferdinand in 1898.

Explore how Alice put her own stamp on the house and gardens. Detailed recreations provide a window into how rooms would have looked when she lived there, and are complete with her collections of Sèvres porcelain and delicate textiles.
