The garden, house, car parks and toilets are open. We no longer have a booking system in place for visits.

In the garden, there is no designated route to follow, and everything will be open.

In the house, the ground floor will be open with a one-way route. Visitors will have the option to scan the NHS QR code before entering the house. You do not need to book a time to visit the house, simply queue up to enter the house when you are ready.

What is closed?

The tea-room & shop will not be reopening.

What method of payment is accepted?

Card payments only

Arriving at Antony by car

We have a large main car park at Antony, so there is plenty of space to park away from others.  There is also a designated accessible car park located further down the approach road. Parking is free for members and non-members.

Bringing your dog?

Dogs are not permitted into the formal grounds at Antony but there are plenty of spaces to walk dogs in the surrounding woodland (not National Trust).

Assistance dogs welcome.


The garden route consists of gravel paths, cobbled areas & lawn. There are benches throughout the garden to offer you places to rest along the way. See the access statement for more information on access at Antony..

If you have accessibility requirements and need a shorter route around the garden please talk to a member of staff on your arrival.

The visitor route in the house is wheelchair accessible via the visitor exit.

Up to two carers may be admitted for free whilst accompanying a person with a disability.
