Visiting Newark Park: what to expect from your visit

South front of Newark Park

We're reopening the places you love, gradually, safely and in line with government advice.

Newark Park reopened on Monday 15 June, and we’ve introduced advanced booking system to help manage visitor numbers and maintain safe, social distancing. All visitors must book in advance, even if you’re a member. Sadly, if you don't book, you’ll be turned away.

We’re limiting numbers to make sure that we can keep visitors and staff safe. These limited advance tickets do go quickly, but every Friday we release new tickets for the following week, so it's worth checking back on our What's On section regularly.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon


What to expect when you arrive

Once parked up you can collect your parking ticket from one of the pay-and-display machines, which are currently cash only. Members can scan their membership cards here too. The pay-and-display machines are sanitised throughout the day. 

At visitor reception, you'll be asked by one of our friendly staff members to show your booking confirmation, and the name which you booked under. 

Our toilets are open and cleaned regularly throughout the day. 

What’s open?

The garden, play area, tea pavilion and estate are open. We’re sorry but the shop and house are closed.

Visiting the garden

Our garden, estate, carved animal and play area are open and can be enjoyed during your visit. A few of the pathways down to the lakeside garden are one-way to keep our visitors safe, but these are clearly signposted.

Eating at Newark Park

Visitors are welcome to bring picnics on site (just remember to watch out for our resident hens and peacocks).

Our tea pavilion is open from 10.30am-4pm each day.

How to book

All visitors must book a ticket in advance, including members. Entry and parking is free for members, but please bring your membership card with you. Non-members will need to pay in advance.

  • Please book one ticket per person, except for children aged 5 or under as they don’t need a ticket.
  • You’ll need to choose a 30-minute arrival time for the day you want to visit.
  • The timeslot is for your arrival time only 
  • Tickets are for your use only and are not available for resale
  • We'll send your booking confirmation by email. Please make sure you fill in your correct email address when you book to ensure you receive your confirmation email.

Every Friday we'll release new bookings for visits the following week. You can book up to 18 hours before a timeslot. 

Due to limited spaces, we’re asking that you only book once a week to allow others a chance to visit.
