Visiting us this Summer

Information on our safety measures for visitors and staff

Maintaining the health, safety and welfare of our staff and visitors remains our primary concern

Until the Government instructs otherwise, we will enforce social distancing requirements, impose a limitation upon the number of visitors within the house at any time, and introduce a one-way system. 

Please note that you will be required to wear a face covering within the house.

 Prior to visiting

Please do NOT visit Arundells if:

  • You are experiencing any of the recognised symptoms associated with Coronavirus infection or have experienced any of these symptoms within the last 14 days, or you have knowingly been in contact with any person who has exhibited any of these symptoms within the last 14 days.

Reception and payment for tickets

 You will be asked to wait to be called forward by our reception team. At this time, please cleanse your hands using the sanitiser provided. Please also scan the NHS App, or provide our receptionist with your contact details for track and tracing purposes.

 Payment must, please, be by card. We will not be accepting cash or cheque payments.

Garden only visitors

If you have purchased a ticket for the garden only, please make your way over the lawn to the side of the house and enjoy exploring. Please do bring a picnic if you would like to. We simply ask that you maintain social distancing.

Visiting the House

 Please proceed to the front door and wait for one of our Stewards to confirm when you will be able to enter the house. Please then follow the one way system from room to room.

We hope that you thoroughly enjoy your visit to Arundells and thank you for your help and support.

Arundells Collection includes works by well known artists, ceramics, gifts from world leaders, hand painted Chinese wallpaper and Morning Cloud scale model yachts.
