With its current populace of around two thousand (census of 2011), modern day Waddesdon is still dominated by structures established for the Rothschilds (properties built for manor workers, the Five Arrows hotel & the village hall). The parish accounts for roughly seven thousand acres (along with Westcott, Woodham, Eythrope and Wormstone). Waddesdon formerly had a railway station which connected it to nearby Aylesbury, this is long closed and the village can only be got to by road (namely the A41).
