Following the Government’s Coronavirus recovery road map announcement on 22nd February, we are working hard to establish what this means for Wentworth Woodhouse.
The Government guidance allows for people to access their local Heritage Gardens for daily exercise with people from their household or support bubble. We ask all visitors to follow these restrictions when making decisions about travelling.
The House remains closed until further notice.
At this critical time, we feel we need to act responsibly, and we have a duty of care to ensure the safety of our staff, visitors and local community in Wentworth in trying to control the virus, we therefore thank you for patience whilst we implement our gradual reopening plan.
Thank you for your continued support at this challenging time.
The Gardens are currently open Wednesday to Sunday 10am – 4pm daily for local supporters to exercise within our beautiful snowdrop gardens extending to over 50 acres.
There are toilets located around the garden with full hand washing facilities, as well as additional hand sanistiser stations located at the entrance and around the garden, which we encourage you to use regularly.
The Gardens Kiosk will be also be open Wednesday to Sunday 10am – 4pm daily offering grab-and-go takeaway food and drinks. Whilst the East Front Kiosk will be open Friday to Sunday 10am – 4pm offering a similar menu, this provision is freely accessible for local visitors taking exercise in the parkland.
Staying safe on your visit:
We are doing all we can to help keep visitors, staff and volunteers safe – and are proud to hold the Visit Britain ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard mark.
It is awarded to organisations which have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have necessary risk assessments in place, and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
But we need you to play an important part in helping ensure health and wellbeing, by following current government Covid-19 guidelines and additional guidance from Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust.
Remember, if you have a high temperature, or new continuous cough, please postpone your visit and stay at home for 14 days.
Safety measures and requests in place:
Our Mansion is currently closed to comply with COVID-19 restrictions, but local visitors are currently welcome to exercise in our gardens. All visitors gain ticketed admission to the gardens in timed slots to limit the number of people on-site and minimise queuing.
Please book online. There may be some availability for tickets on the day, but this cannot be guaranteed as allocation for timed slots is strictly limited. During your visit, please respect social distancing and follow all signage and one-way systems – they are designed for your safety.
Toilets and handwashing facilities are on site. Sanitiser is provided in key locations. Please sanitise your hands on entry and regularly during your visit. Safe queuing systems are in place at our mobile catering units. Only contactless/card payments can be accepted.
