What's on

Do I need to pre-book? 

Pre-booking is advised but not essential. If you're visiting just the parkland, shop and cafe you don't need to pre-book. However if you wish to visit the house, formal and kitchen gardens we would advise pre-booking to guarantee a space.

If you decide to pre-book you'll need to do this by 3pm the day before you plan to visit. Everything is now open with the exception of the play areas. The house is open Tuesday - Saturday, 12 noon-4pm (last entry 3.30pm). The café is open 10am-4pm serving a limited range of drinks and light snacks.

Members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking. We’ll be releasing tickets for the week ahead each Friday. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Pre-booking does not guarantee entry to the house, timed tickets for the house can be collected on arrival.

We need your support 

For 125 years, people like you have helped us protect some of the UK's best-loved places. Everyone needs nature, beauty and green spaces now more than ever. But our income has dropped sharply due to the coronavirus crisis, and our essential conservation work is at risk. Please give what you can to help us look after these places, so people and nature can thrive.

Experience more with National Trust membership 

As we gradually and safely open more of the places we care for, there’ll be more opportunities to explore gardens and parklands near you. If you’re a member, you can access all these places free, together with most National Trust car parks. It’s so important for everyone to have fresh air, birdsong, big skies and open spaces to enjoy. Your membership will go towards looking after all of this for generations to come.
