Timed tickets

Entry to the Manor is by timed ticket and we've pulled together some of the most frequently asked questions about how they work.

Why are there timed tickets?
The rooms are small and packed full of treasures, and we’d like you to explore them without feeling crowded. Timed tickets help us make your visit more enjoyable, giving you the time and leisure to discover the fascinating manor and its collection in a more relaxed environment.

How much does it cost?
The timed ticket is free; it’s included in the normal admission price or member admission.

Why can’t I reserve my ticket in advance?
Unfortunately reserved tickets have been left uncollected in the past, resulting in someone else missing out. To make sure this never happens, tickets are allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

When will I have to leave the Manor?
Regardless of your entry time slot, you can spend as long as you like up until the Manor closes at the end of the day.

Do I need a timed ticket for the garden or the Priest’s House ?
Not at all. At any time during your visit you can explore

  • the Priest’s House, where Charles Wade lived
  • Turquoise Cellar with more about Charles Wade’s story
  • the beautiful garden, an Arts and Craft gem with hidden spots and quirky treasures to discover

And of course there is our shop and the café to enjoy from 11am.

Do you ever run out?
Very rarely. Occasionally on bank holidays and during school holidays, tickets may sell out. On these days this usually happens from early afternoon, so if you are visiting during this time, please make sure to get here early.

On the days we do run out of Manor tickets you are still welcome to buy a cheaper ‘Garden only’ ticket which gets you access to the garden, the Priest’s House, the shop and café.
