Visitor Booking


All Grounds tickets must be pre-booked online for National Trust members, Local Resident Pass holders and paying visitors

We are limiting the number of visitors each day to allow for social distancing

There is a maximum capacity of Grounds tickets available each day, and therefore we are likely to be sold out prior to arrival

Please follow the current government advice on interacting with people outside of your household

Please do not visit if you or a member of your household has had any symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 14 days

Please select your time of arrival using the HALF HOURLY slot options. This is to ensure we evenly spread out the arrival of our visitors throughout the day. You are welcome to stay until 5:30pm

You can only book up to two weeks in advance. Further tickets will then be released weekly each Friday
