Where you can visit

Following the government announcement of a four-week lockdown in England, we're pleased we can keep the outdoor spaces we care for in the South East open, including coast and countryside sites and car parks, as well as, gardens and parklands. You can still enjoy takeaway food and drink from our cafés and food outlets, and outdoor play areas will stay open in line with government guidance. We recommend you book in advance for visits to gardens and parks, especially at busy times like weekends. See what's open and ready for you to book this week below....

Take part in an online winter adventure with Peter Rabbit™ 

Unfortunately, we've had to postpone Peter Rabbit™ winter adventure activity trail at our places in the South East until later this winter. But there's still lots of things you can do to help Peter's friends at home. To prepare for your adventure, get stuck into these Peter Rabbit activity packs - we'll be adding more throughout the season. At home you can still get creative, help out a wild animal and learn more about the natural world around you with the help of your favourite Beatrix Potter characters.
