Which places are open and what you need to know before you visit 

We've started to open some gardens and parks in England and Northern Ireland. To limit numbers and keep everyone safe, you can only visit by booking tickets in advance. A lot of places are now fully booked up to 14 June, but we release new tickets every Friday, and we’re also opening more gardens and parks every week. More than 200 coastal and countryside car parks are also open. All houses remain closed at the moment, and all places in Wales remain closed in line with Welsh government advice. Read this article to find out what's open and what to expect from your visit.
