What to expect on your visit

Dapdune Wharf from top of Reliance barge

We're looking forward to welcoming you back. Dapdune Wharf is now open, free of charge.

Welcome back

Good news - the Wharf is now free to enter.  We don’t have the usual Easter trails and activities here this year, but why not come along and enjoy a hot drink and a socially distanced stroll around the island?

The exhibition rooms are closed, in line with government restrictions, for now.  


There is no admission fee. Parking is free for National Trust members but non-National Trust members will have to pay to park. Please look for the signs in the car park. 

You can pay for car parking by downloading the PayByPhone App onto your smartphone. If you want to find out about the benefits of National Trust membership, please take a look on our website here, where you can join easily online.

Book a boat trip  

Please book your boat trip in advance. We will have to turn visitors away who have not booked.  

Book paddleboarding

Surrey Hills Adventure Company are offering have a go stand up paddleboarding sessions at Dapdune over Easter.  These must be booked in advance on their website.

Keeping safe

Please bring a face covering with you – you will need this on the boat trip and when ordering anything from the tearoom. During very busy times, we may need to close the tearoom, to ensure that people are able to follow social distancing guidance.
