However, where space is available on weekdays, pre-booking may not always be necessary. The main entrance and woodland car park entrance are open, please use either entrance with your pre-booked tickets. We're looking forward to welcoming you back.

Our refreshment kiosk, in the Walled Garden, and the Conservatory cafe have reopened and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you will support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.
