National Trust

We’ve already opened more than 200 National Trust coast and countryside car parks in England and Northern Ireland. From 3 June, we’re opening a small number of gardens and parklands in England and Northern Ireland through advance bookings. ​

We can’t open everywhere at once and we’ll open more places in the coming weeks. For now, houses remain closed and all places in Wales remain closed following Welsh Government advice.​

For many of these places, you’ll need to book your visit in advance. You’ll be able to book your visit to National Trust gardens and parklands from 29 May.​ Follow the link below to find out what’s open, how to book, and what to expect from your visit. Please always check before you travel.

Thanks for your patience and support, we can’t wait to welcome you back.

Blenheim Palace

We are very pleased at the Government’s decision to allow paid attractions to now open. From Saturday 30th May until the end of the 5th June we will open our Park and Gardens to our Annual Pass Holders and walking permit holders only. From 6th June onwards we will welcome all.

To keep everyone safe and manage volumes it is essential all book a date and time slot prior to any visit. We can’t wait to see you all to make memories once

English Heritage

We’re hoping to reopen some of our staffed sites from early July, in line with government guidance. There’ll be several different phases of reopening, and we’ll let you know which sites are opening as soon as we can. In the meantime, around 200 of our free-to-enter sites are now open, including places like Iron Bridge, Caister Roman Fort, Maiden Castle and many parts of Hadrian’s Wall.

Right now, staff and volunteers across the country are working hard to adapt our sites to prepare them for reopening. Your visits will be as enjoyable as ever, and there will be new measures in place to make sure that everyone can observe social distancing.

We are still finalising our reopening plans, and we’ll share more details when we have them.
