Visiting Sizergh: What you need to know

Sizergh in autumn

In line with government guidance, Sizergh's house, garden, café, shop, secondhand bookshop and estate remain open. A limited number of house tickets are available from 10am Thursday to Sunday, on a first come, first served basis. In this article you’ll find everything you need to know about what to expect when you arrive.

You no longer need to pre-book your visit to Sizergh. Visitors will be free to drop in any day of the week - please just head to the Visitor Welcome building in the car park for your ticket. Tickets for the house are limited and sold on a first come first served basis from 10am, Thursday to Sunday. Not all rooms in the house are open yet. If you are a member, please remember to scan your membership card at the parking machine, and non-members will need to pay.

Staying safe

Face coverings are not compulsory but we recommend that you wear one in any area on your visit which is enclosed and crowded, like the shop, cafe, house and toilets.

Facilities

The 1600 acre parkland, children's wild play trail, house, gardens, shop, secondhand book shop and café are open.

Please bear in mind we can only take payment by card.

Toilets next to the garden entrance are open. A disabled toilet with baby changing facilities is available next to the garden entrance.

There are picnic tables available for your use. Please help us spend less on waste removal by taking your rubbish home with you.

Dogs are not allowed in the formal gardens but are welcome on leads in the parkland.

Accessibility

There are nine designated parking bays for disabled visitors in the main car park. These are on a firm, tarmac surface and are closest to the garden entrance. 

A disabled toilet can be found next to the garden entrance.

Essential Companion card – The Essential Companion card makes it simple to bring one or two carers or companions with you, free of charge. Just show the card when you arrive, and your carer(s) or companion(s) won’t need to pay an entry fee. If you don’t have an Essential Companion card, you can still bring carers or companions for free – the card just makes it quicker and simpler for you.
