When you arrive
When you arrive at Claremont, you'll be greeted by our welcome team. You'll need to have your tickets to hand when you arrive to show staff through the car window. National Trust members will also need to show their membership card
If you’re more than 10 minutes late for your arrival slot then entry will be at the discretion of the property team.
We ask that visitors stay for a maximum of 2 hours. This is to help us manage numbers on site so we can ensure a safe visit for everyone.
To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. And look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.
If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.
Our toilets are open as usual and are being cleaned regularly.
Please note, our cafe is completely closed at this time- we won't be serving takeaway food and drinks.
Our play area is closed at this time, but our natural play area Badgers Basecamp remains open, with safety measures in place.
Dogs on short leads are allowed in the garden from 1 October to 30 April.
The entrance to the garden has moved to allow us to set up a one-way system. It's still a level route, suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
Our property wheelchairs are not available to hire at this time
