Where do I park?
Parking is at Bosworth’s Garden Centre in the Walled Garden, Elton. There is ample room and provision for disabled parking. The entrance to the Hall and Garden is along a pleasant tree-lined walk of approximately 300 metres.
Lavatories & Disabled Lavatories
There are facilities at both Bosworth’s Garden Centre and at the Hall.
Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are not allowed in the Hall and Garden. Assistance dogs are allowed in the Garden.
Please note that last admission to the house and garden is 4.30pm. This is to allow a minimum of at least 45 minutes for each visit. Entry time to the Hall building is shown on your ticket. Historic House members and RHS members are asked to pre-book to secure their timed entry.
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.
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.
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.
For further information about access arrangements, please telephone the Events Office: 01832 280468 / 07949 495422 or email email@example.com
Security and large bags
For safety and security reasons, a one-way system operates along the visitor route. Backpacks may not be worn and large bags and items may not be carried inside the Hall (including pushchairs). These can be left behind the front desk and collected at the end of your house visit.
