Everything you need to know about your visit to Winkworth

When you arrive

When you arrive at Winkworth, you'll be greeted by our welcome team at our kiosk. You'll need to have your tickets to hand. National Trust members will also need to show their membership card

If you’re more than 10 minutes late for your arrival slot then entry will be at the discretion of the property team. 

You're welcome to stay for as long as you wish, up until 4pm when the Arboretum closes. 

Staying safe

To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. And look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site. 

If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.



Our toilets are open as usual and are being cleaned regularly. They are working on a one-in, one-out policy.

Play areas

Our play areas have now reopened! Please follow the safety guidance on site.  


Our tea-room has now reopened and is serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks, with outdoor seating available.

We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you will support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

All visitors must book a ticket in advance, including members. Entry and parking is free for members, but please bring your membership card with you. Non-members will need to pay in advance.

  • Please book one ticket per person, except for children aged 5 or under as they don’t need a ticket.
  • You’ll need to choose a 30-minute arrival time for the day you want to visit.
  • The timeslot is for your arrival time only 
  • Tickets are for your use only and are not available for resale

Every Friday we'll release new bookings for visits the following week. You can book up to 18 hours before a timeslot. 

Due to limited spaces, we’re asking that you only book once a week to allow others a chance to visit.
