Some of the smaller places we care for in England will be opening with guided tours, so you’ll need to pre-book before your visit. These tours will be led by expert volunteers and will show the places in a new light. You may also need to book in advance at some other places temporarily, where visitor numbers need to be limited for practical reasons.
