Waddesdon's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Hidden amongst the treasures within Waddesdon's collection are a selection of bizarre, fantastical and mythical creatures, that until now have not received much attention.

While research is still ongoing about the provenance of many of Waddesdon’s ‘beasts’, some histories are better known. Curator Dr Mia Jackson has put together a selection of images and fascinating information about some of these creatures within the Waddesdon collection, to bring them to light for the first time.
