The National Trust is reopening more grounds and gardens at its properties across the UK, as lockdown restrictions begin to be eased – which now includes Dyrham Park in Gloucestershire.
From Monday 8 June 2020, visitors can book ahead to explore Dyrham Park’s 270-acre ancient deer park, near Bath, although the 17th-century house and garden remain closed.
It is the first National Trust property in Gloucestershire to reopen, with Newark Park, Woodchester Park, Chedworth Roman Villa, Hidcote, Hailes Abbey and Snowshill Manor all remaining closed to visitors for the time being.
Visitor number capacities have been cut to 30 per cent of normal levels at all National Trust locations that are open to ensure social distancing can be maintained and anyone wanting to take a trip will need to book in advance using the new online system.
The National Trust’s online booking system applies to both members and non-members and only one ticket per person will be available, excluding children under five-years-old who go free. Arrival times and how long people can stay vary by location and are specified when booking.
The National Trust is encouraging people to leave the first and last time slots each day free for key workers.
