Family walks through the Tredegar House grounds in winter

We're looking forward to welcoming you back. You’ll find everything you need to know about what's open and what to expect from your visit in this article.

What’s open? 

In line with the most recent Welsh Government guidance, this is what’s open at Tredegar House: 

Open: 

  • The state rooms (open from 11am - 4pm every day)
  • Formal gardens
  • Brewhouse cafe
  • Second-hand bookshop (open from 11am - 3pm)

Closed: 

  • The below stairs rooms and bedrooms will remain closed for now as we welcome back our house volunteers and continue to keep everyone safe.

Toilets are available next to our car park and in the Brewhouse café. To keep everyone safe, please wear a face covering when indoors and follow our guidance on how many people can safely be in these spaces at once. We may close the toilets for short amounts of time to accommodate for additional cleaning. 

To help keep everyone safe, all visitors will need to register their details to a member of our team at visitor reception before entering the gardens, and in the Brewhouse cafe when ordering their food and drinks. This is part of the Welsh Government's Test, Trace and Protect programme. You may also need to queue before entering our indoor spaces. 

Please visit our homepage for specific opening times.

Our carpark is pay and display, but free for National Trust members and blue badge holders.

Staying safe: 

The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors is our priority. To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and Welsh 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. Please be patient with our team, who are working hard to adapt the site to ensure everyone is kept safe.

If you’re showing any of symptoms of coronavirus or you've been asked to self-isolate, please don’t visit. 

What's changed? 

Since the coronavirus pandemic began, we’ve changed a few things to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers and local community. 

  • You no longer need to book to visit us.   
    From Saturday 7th August, Wales is moving to Alert Level 0. This means you'll no longer need to book to visit us. 
     
  • Wearing face coverings when indoors
    If you're exempt from wearing a face mask, you do not need to wear one when you visit. However if you're not exempt, you will need to bring your own face mask to use in our indoor spaces. Our team will be wearing their masks too, to ensure everyone is kept safe and will be reminding visitors to wear their face coverings in indoor spaces if you are not exempt. You no longer need to wear a face mask in the Brewhouse café. 
     
  • Keeping a safe distance 
    We've introduced screens at our counters and ask everyone to keep a safe distance from each other. Areas where we can’t guarantee a safe distance are temporarily closed. This includes the slip garden and bedrooms in the house. Please pay attention to signs across the site which will direct you. Our team are always there to help you should you have any questions.
     
  • Hand sanitising stations 
    There are plenty of hand sanitising stations located at different areas across the site for everyone to use. Please remember to sanitise your hands regularly to help us keep the site clean. Our team will be happy to help you find the sanitising station nearest to you.  

Accessibility: 

We’re working hard to make sure Tredegar House is accessible for everyone. For detailed information about the accessibility of the site, please read our access statement.

The main things to note are: 

  • Most of the site is flat and even, however some areas have cobbled paths
  • Some paths in the parkland can be uneven and muddy
  • Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere 

If you have any concerns or questions about visiting, please contact our team who are happy to help.
