From 1 January 2024 until at least summer 2025 Uppark House & Garden will be closed so that we can carry out essential repairs and maintenance to improve Uppark’s facilities and secure its future.

Uppark House & Gardens closure

What is happening at Uppark?

From 1 January 2024 we’re closing Uppark House & Gardens to allow work to begin on an essential maintenance project. This will improve the facilities on site, make the property more environmentally friendly and restore access to areas including the stables in the West Pavilion.

Whilst we are sad to have to close our doors to visitors, this will enable the project to be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The work will begin with the replacement of the on-site sewerage system by connecting us to the mains system. This will enhance visitor amenities and save money by reducing the need for waste removal.

The next phase of repairs will include updating the electrical and heating systems, replacing the biomass boilers with more sustainable models, and making initial repairs to the stables so that we can re-open them.

In addition to these major repairs, a number of smaller conservation, renovation and restoration projects will be carried out. These include deep cleaning of the mansion’s upholstery, carpets and collection items as well as repairing and redecorating visitor facilities including access routes and the café. The gardens will be maintained throughout the project.

During this time Uppark House & Gardens will remain closed to the public to allow the work to take place as quickly and efficiently as possible.
