National Trust is no longer keeping parks and gardens open

To help with social distancing, The National Trust has re-evaluated its decision to allow free access to its parks, gardens and outdoor spaces, during the Coronavirus outbreak. It urges people to 'stay local' and 'do not travel'.

The National Trust announced that it had ‘sadly’ taken the decision to close its parks and gardens, in addition to its houses, shops and cafés, ‘to help restrict the spread of coronavirus’.

It said in a statement on its website at 1pm on Sunday 22 March 2020, that also ‘many of our car parks for countryside and coastal locations will also have to close due to high demand.

‘We urge people to stay local and observe social distancing. Please do not travel.’

Days earlier The National Trust had announced it would keep parks and gardens open and ‘free of charge’ wherever possible, following government advice for the British public to adopt social distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak.

For more information, call the National Trust’s Gloucestershire team on (01275) 378440.
