Where can I visit?

Our gardens, parks, shops and countryside locations are open. Many houses in England and Wales are now open to visit, and indoor and outdoor seating is available at some cafés.

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.

Reopening soon

Subject to confirmation from the Northern Ireland Executive, we're expecting houses, visitor centres and cafés in Northern Ireland to reopen from 24 May. We're looking forward to welcoming you back indoors soon.
