Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

Please also note that the monument is not open at the moment, although visitors are still able to enter the stone enclosure that surrounds the monument to get a close-up view.

This property is part of the ‘We’re Good to Go’ scheme, which means we have carried out an official COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have everything in place to reopen safely.

If you plan to see the Jacobite ‘Hogwarts Express’ steam train, we recommend allowing plenty of time to get parked to avoid disappointment – the car park is closed when full, for safety reasons.

Please see our drop-down Facilities below for helpful information about planning your visit.

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us we can be contacted by email: or telephone 01397 722250.
