We are delighted to announce that Melbourne Hall Gardens will re-open on Saturday 27th June after the lockdown due to Coronavirus.
From then on during the season on Saturdays and Sundays only from 1 pm until 5 pm.
Entry will be by pre-booked tickets only which will be issued with a numbered and dated email.
There will be no access whatsoever without a pre-booked ticket. Tickets are to be shown at the entry point using a smart phone, tablet or printed paper version of the email.
Tickets will be available to purchase at the usual prices between 10am – 2pm from the Office at Melbourne Hall by telephone: 01332 862502 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets will be supplied to your email address. Please do not visit the Estate Office to purchase the 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.
