What you should and shouldn’t do when using Waddesdon parks
Read more about what you can and can’t do in parks and outdoor public spaces on GOV.UK.
Don’t go to a park if you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). Stay at home and self-isolate.
Some park facilities are closed to help reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
In line with government guidance, we’re looking at how we can reopen these facilities and make sure that staff and residents stay safe. We’ll update this post when facilities are open.
