Planning your visit

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.

Please note that there will be limited access to the house, but the Box will be open.

We’ve set up a pre-booking system to make your tour around the house easier and safer. Ticket numbers are capped each day, so please book in advance to avoid disappointment. No more than six people will be permitted per half hour time slot. In accordance with government guidelines, booking groups should contain no more than two household groups.

We strongly advise that you pre-book before travelling. If you do not pre-book, we cannot guarantee entry to the house and you may be turned away.
