Visitor information


To secure your preferred time slot, please use our online booking system below.

We operate exclusive staggered visits for up to 8 people with 15 minute intervals. Individuals will be able to book an exclusive slot in the same way that a group of 8 can. Groups of more than 8 persons (or more than 2 family groups) will need to book 2 consecutive slots to maintain reliable social distancing from others.

Your visit isn’t timed during the latter part of your visit as this will be spent outside. Once outside, we expect you to continue to respect others’ enjoyment and maintain safe distancing.

Please consider participating in our Gift Aid scheme, which is a massive boost to us as a small heritage charity. A small extra donation on your admission fee means we can make a subsequent claim to HMRC and further increase our core income.

Prompt arrivals are essential to maintain our 15 minute staggered slots. Please arrive at reception no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled visit. We will take your name to confirm your pre-paid ticket.

Late arrivals and walk-ins risk disappointment during busy periods.

There are disabled toilet facilities available.

Due to the historic setting of this site and number of steps involved during your visit, people with mobility issues may find it challenging to get around. We can provide support and are able to provide alternative routes for those with walking aids. Do contact if you wish to discuss further.
