2021 Closure

Burton Constable Hall & Grounds will remain closed until further notice, due to the current lockdown in England.

Similar to each decision made throughout 2020 surrounding the pandemic, our senior team have considered current guidelines and advice from authorities and governing bodies before deciding to keep the premises closed.

Despite the awareness of how our wide open spaces are useful for exercise and escapism, guidelines do not permit recreation. Moreover, we’re encouraging people to stay local within their own town, village or city and abide by travel restrictions, rather than travelling to our site. Understandably, this may be frustrating for our locals and members who live nearby but we need to act responsibly and consider the welfare of all, including our own staff.

All Annual Pass Holders will, once again, be offered an extension to their membership, for the duration of the closure period.

Despite the disappointment of not being able to visit us in the short-term, we have a duty of care controlling this virus in our local community, so that when we do re-open it can be for the long-term. We hope you can understand and appreciate our decision. 

Meanwhile, take care, stay safe and thank you for your ongoing support. 

The Burton Constable Team.
