Latest visiting update

We're open and safe for you to visit. Many of your local gardens, parks, coast and countryside places are open in England, and places in Wales are open for visitors who live in Wales. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at weekends and school holidays. 

All houses in England remain closed. In line with Northern Ireland Executive legislation, houses, gardens and parks in Northern Ireland will close from 27 November to 11 December. Please always check the property webpage of the place you wish to visit before you travel.
