What's open? 

More than 100 gardens and parks and hundreds of coast and countryside car parks are open in England and Northern Ireland. You can also explore many historic houses in England. 

To avoid disappointment, we recommend you book tickets in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends, school holidays and bank holidays. Every Friday we release new tickets for the following week, around 700,000 tickets are available weekly. 

What's closed? 

In line with Welsh government legislation and the 'fire break' lockdown, all our places in Wales will temporarily close from Saturday 24 October to Monday 9 November to restrict the spread of coronavirus.

Following the latest official guidance, our historic houses in Northern Ireland are now closed. 

Please check the property webpage of the place you wish to visit before you travel.
