Where can I visit?

Our gardens, parks, cafés, shops and countryside locations are open. Many houses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are now open to visit.

Advance booking for visits helps us keep everyone safe and socially distanced. When space is available, particularly on weekdays, pre-booking isn't always necessary.​ But to guarantee entry, please always book in advance, especially at busier times like weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you travel and follow government guidance when you visit.
