At present, all the facilities at Flatford are closed and we have no parking for coaches. Once this situation changes, we will update our website.  When we do open, we ask everyone planning to bring a party of 10 or more to use the facilities to let us know.

If I book for 2021, what can I see and do?

At Flatford, on the Essex/Suffolk border, we entertain about 80 large group visits per year, with many more smaller groups and regular coach tours. 

We are able to make your tour specific to your needs with private guided tours and pre-arranged snacks and light lunch menus.

With its meandering River Stour Flatford is situated in the heart of the delightful Dedham Vale, which makes it an ideal venue to stop and have lunch. Visit the scenes that made John Constable famous while relaxing in our riverside tea-room.

How much will a group visit in 2021 cost?

Surprisingly little, admission is free to the site, just pay for your parking. National Trust members park for free.
