Burton Constable Hall & Grounds Closure

Given the current climate and the ongoing uncertainties, for the safety and welfare of our staff and visitors, we have made the decision to close all our facilities from 21/03/20 until further notice. 


All scheduled events, activities and exhibitions will be postponed with a view of re-implementing them in the future. 


Meanwhile, take care of yourselves and each other and we hope to see you all again soon.
