You can now explore Waddesdon in virtual reality from the comfort of your own home in high-definition. All you need is a smartphone and a VR headset, such as Google Cardboard.
The virtual tours were created by a high quality reality-capture camera collecting accurate visual data to map each room. For starters, you can explore the Red Drawing Room and get up close to portraits by Reynolds and Gainsborough, zoom in to see the ceiling painting of Hercules and even check out the view onto the Parterre.
You can also ‘walk’ through the Green Boudoir, Tower Drawing Room, Small Library and the Bachelors’ Wing, rooms that aren’t always open or only seen from the doorway, due to the fragility of their collections. You feel as if you’re really there at Waddesdon.
