Days out

Where do you want to go?

Latest visiting update

Our gardens, parks and countryside locations are open to visit. Shops are also open and outdoor seating is available at some cafés. Subject to government confirmation, we're planning to reopen houses in England and Wales from 17 May, and in Northern Ireland from 24 May. Advance booking for visits helps us keep everyone safe and socially distanced. When space is available, particularly on weekdays, pre-booking isn't always necessary. But to guarantee entry, please always book in advance, especially at busier times like weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance.

Bluebells near you 

As restrictions ease, more of our places are opening, and just in time for bluebells to be flowering. You can discover the best places near you to see these delicate blooms, find out why bees love bluebells, understand how we look after bluebells at places we care for and get planting tips from our gardeners.

Join in Blossom watch 

Blossom is a delightful sign that spring is here, with warmer weather, bluer skies and buzzing wildlife to go along with these floral displays. We’re asking you to look out for blossom on your local walk and share your sightings with #BlossomWatch on social media.
