Open Days

We open on a selection of weekends between April and November (normally these include Bank Holiday weekends) as shown in the  calendar below. Admission for events with a brown background is charged at our Standard rate; ones with a red background are Premium events and charged at higher prices.

Details of our 2024 and 2025 open days are provisional, so although the dates we will be open are unlikely to change, any special themes may be subject to alteration – so please keep checking back!

We can open for private visits on other dates if arranged in advance – there is a minimum charge for this. If you’d like to know more, check this page.
