Visiting Nostell: What you need to know

Tulips in front of the Orangery at Nostell

Our gardens and parkland are open, along with the café for outdoor seating and takeaway only. We've introduced advance booking to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays.

Parking and when you arrive:

Car parking is free for members and £5 for non-members – all visitors must book a space to visit. Please be ready to give your name and show your membership card as you arrive. Our friendly team will check your booking, direct you where to park and answer any questions. There are designated Blue Badge spaces available for pre-booked tickets if required. 

Please arrive within your half-hour timeslot, to help maintain social distancing. If you’re more than 10 minutes late for your arrival slot, then entry will be at the discretion of the property team. You’re welcome to stay as long as you like until closing time.

To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays.
