Visiting Great Chalfield: What you need to know

Great Chalfield Manor's garden and Great Hall are open for visits in line with government guidance. Here's what to expect, how to book and how to cancel your visit.

What your visit will look like

To keep everyone safe, your visit may be slightly different than what you're used to:

  • The garden and Great Hall are open.
  • Please book your tickets to visit in advance. Members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking. You will be turned away if you arrive without a booking.
  • You don't need to book a parking space.
  • The Great Hall is open on a free flow basis. Face coverings are recommended in enclosed and crowded areas. 
  • Visits to the Hall are limited to ensure social distancing and entry is not guaranteed on the day you visit.
  • Entry to the Hall is via two steps and so is not accessible to wheelchairs.
  • Toilets, including accessible toilets, are open.
  • The safety of our staff, volunteers, visitors and local communities remains our priority. We urge people to follow government guidance and stay local.

To help keep everyone safe, look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.

If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.
