Visits are via prebooked tickets only. Information on how to book your ticket is available below. Tickets are not available to book on the day.

From Wednesday 21 July, Quebec House will be fully reopen. The gardens are open, as well as the exhibition in the upstairs of the Coach House (via a set of stairs), before finishing in our new and improved second-hand bookshop, to browse at your leisure.

As we rely on our volunteers to help us open, on occassion, some areas of the house might have to close on select days. We always strive to open as much as we can, however, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Book your tickets

In order to visit Quebec House, you will need to book your tickets in advance. National Trust members can book for free, while non-members will need to pay when booking. Members will need to bring your membership card with you on the day.

New booking slots are released on a Thursday for visits the following week. We are now able to offer tickets two weeks in advance.

When you book your visit, you will need to choose a 30-minute arrival time for the day you wish to visit. Please book one ticket per person, except for children aged 5 and under as they don’t need a ticket and will get in for free.

The timeslot that you choose is for your arrival time only. Please ensure that you arrive at the property within your 30-minute time slot. If you are more than 10 minutes late, we may not be able to guarantee your entry. If you are early, we may have to ask you to return at your allotted time.

Access for everyone

If you need to bring a carer or essential companion to accompany you as a disabled visitor, you can now book a carers ticket at the time of booking, free of charge.

Frequently asked questions

Please read through our frequently asked questions below; if you require further information please email us at quebechouse@nationaltrust.org.uk.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Are there refreshments available to buy?

No. Unfortunately, as part of the changes to Quebec House, the small selection of cakes as well as hot drink machine is no longer available at Quebec House. We recommend either heading on into Westerham where there are different pubs and cafés for you to choose from, or nearby Chartwell has a National Trust café that’s fully open.

Can I make a booking on the day I want to visit?

All timeslots close 18 hours ahead of time. Where space is available on weekdays, pre-booking may not always be necessary, however if you do not book we cannot guarantee admission.

Can I make a booking by speaking to the property directly?

We are unable to make any bookings at the property as the booking system is being managed centrally. Please make your booking on our website; if you are unable to book online you can call our booking team on 0344 249 1895.
