Places in the East of England you need to book 

Some of the smaller places we care for in England are open with guided experiences or you may need to travel by boat to reach them, so you’ll need to pre-book before your visit. Our tours will be led by expert volunteers and will show the places in a new light. Tickets are released on a Thursday for a two week period.
