Melbourne Hall Gardens are now open

We are delighted that Melbourne Hall Gardens are now open again for visitors including Wednesday 29th July. 

During August the Gardens are open every day except Mondays unless it is a Bank Holiday – afternoons only 1-5pm. Through September and October we will be open Weekends and Wednesday afternoons only, 1-5pm. 

Sadly, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we are not able to open the Hall itself for visitors as we would normally do in August. 

Tickets can now be purchased using contactless card payments at the Entrance Gate to the Gardens, usual prices apply.

For further information on tickets or our opening arrangements, please call Melbourne Hall Estate Office on 01332 862502 or email:  during office hours only, Mon-Friday, 10am – 2pm. Please note that the office is NOT OPEN at weekends. 

Please do not visit the Estate Office to purchase tickets as this will put our staff in a vulnerable position.

There will be a limited number of admissions for each open afternoon which will be administered on a ‘first come first served’ basis.

If you have any pre-purchased tickets, please be sure you have means to display your ticket to our staff at the gate. Pace of entry into the gardens will be controlled by ticket office staff to enable social distancing to take place.

Historic Houses and RHS members will be welcome as usual but the same rules must apply.

Please do not visit the gardens if experiencing any symptoms whatsoever of COVID -19.

Visitor advice regarding Covid-19 will be updated on the website as necessary.

Please be sure to wear appropriate clothing for the weather when visiting the gardens and suitable footwear. For your safety, please be warned that there are a number of unfenced ponds in the garden. It is not advisable to leave children or dependants unsupervised.

All visitors enter the gardens at their own risk.
