Visiting Shaw's Corner: What you need to know

We’re pleased to be re-opening the gardens at Shaw's Corner. To ensure everyone can visit safely, we’ve introduced some changes. We’re asking everyone to pre-book their visit and we’ve introduced new safety measures around the site. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about what to expect from your visit.

Staying Safe

To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. Look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site. In line with government guidance, you're required to wear a face covering in all enclosed areas. Please bring one with you, unless exempt.

When arriving at Shaw's Corner please have your ticket ready to show our staff either on your phone or a printed copy. If you’re a member, you’ll also need to show your membership card. You'll be asked to show these at our visitor entrance. Please arrive within your timeslot. Sadly, if you're late, we won’t be able to guarantee you entry. Your entry will be at the discretion of the property staff and will be based on visitor numbers and the ability to maintain social distancing.

Parking is available, including accessible spaces. Our car park is very small, so please park considerately. There is a toilet available for visitor use. You're welcome to bring a flask and a picnic if you'd like, there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the gardens. The house is currently closed, in line with government guidance.
