Official Reopening

After last year’s series of last minute lockdowns, we didn’t anticipate starting 2021 as late as in the year as this, but here it goes…

First and foremost, we bring you the wonderful news that our Grounds are open and the Hall is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday 18th May.


Booking & Visiting

Once again, we are asking that you book your place online. You could just turn up unannounced, but to save us admin time and any queue congestion, we would prefer you to book in advance and simply show your proof of purchase upon arrival. 

Policies & Procedures

If you visited us last year, you will be well aware of the procedures we had in place. Also, by now, we all should be well versed in the expectations and behaviours that come with Covid-19 but if you’d like to absorb some further information, please read our guidelines

Facilities & Offerings

At this time of year, you must take advantage of our outdoor spaces. We’ve even added some historical and educational information panels for you to discover! Grounds entry will grant you (and your dog) access to over 300 acres of beautiful nature, for some much needed escapism and exercise. 

Be it a relaxing picnic on the lawns, a leisurely stroll around the North Pond, or a more ambitious completion of one of our many Walks & Trails, please spend the day at your leisure.  

This should also be a welcome opportunity to meet up with friends and family to enjoy a takeaway offering from the splendid Stables Kitchen. 

Additionally, you could benefit from a full refund on your day visit by becoming a member and signing up for our Annual Pass - giving you further access to discounts and exclusive offers all year round! 

A message from Burton Constable

After so many missed opportunities this year and last, we can’t wait to welcome you all back. We’ve missed the buzz you all bring and the atmosphere you create, as well as not being able to share our stunning surroundings with you. 

The support throughout this entire period has been fantastic and we’re looking to repay you all for your loyalty and faith with lots of upcoming events and offers to make up for lost time. 

To be the first to hear about such occasions, subscribe to our newsletter and follow our social media channels. 

Thanks again and we’ll see you all very soon!
