Visiting Hill Top as a group

We welcome groups at Hill Top but you have to book ahead. Here's all the information you need to visit the gem that is Hill Top House.

If you're an organised tour group of eight or more, travelling by minibus, then you'll need to make a booking, in advance, and have a leader able to act for you to get the tickets and pay for the visit.

For smaller groups of less than eight, or if you're a larger group planning to visit by car, we're unable to make you a pre-booking. However, do please check our general visitor information including our frequently asked questions section as it will help you plan your visit.

Always popular

While we try to accommodate as many group requests as possible, there's no guarantee of a visit. We try to be as helpful as we can for group bookings. However, due to our location and popularity we unfortunately have to limit the number of groups and the types of vehicle that can visit Hill Top.

If we're unable to meet your Hill Top request, as an alternative to Hill Top your group could visit our nearby sister property - the Beatrix Potter Gallery.
