Hall & Garden:  Entry time into the Hall building is shown on your ticket.  We regret that visitors arriving outside their ticket time may be refused admittance.  Visitors with tickets timed at 3.00pm or later may enter the grounds from an hour before the ticket time and visit the Gardens first.

Garden only:  Please arrive at your ticket time.  Gardens will close no later than 6.00pm.

The Hall is not suitable for wheelchairs, Zimmer frames or pushchairs. There are several flights of steps, which may be a problem for visitors with walking difficulties.  There is  very little visitor seating within the Hall. The Garden is accessible for wheelchairs via gravel paths.

How long is the tour of the Hall and Garden?
Visits are either “free-flow” (with Room Stewards available to answer questions) or by guided tour  depending on staff availability.  Most “free-flow” visitors take 45 minutes to 1 hour for the route through the Hall: guided tours last an hour.

The route around the Garden is at your leisure and on average takes approximately 45 minutes.
