Brodsworth Hall and Gardens

We have changed the opening arrangements of our sites to play our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19. Brodsworth gardens are open to local visitors and Members to use for exercise during the lockdown period. You will need to book in advance in order to visit, and we ask everyone to bear in mind the government’s latest advice on travelling before you plan your visit. All the interior spaces will be closed, but the gardens remain open. We have additional safety measures in place at all of our sites including social distancing, enhanced cleaning and limits on visitor numbers to protect the health of all our Members, visitors, staff and volunteers. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.

Please note - The hall remains closed. The shop and toilets remain open. We will continue to review what parts of the site can open in line with reviews to government guidelines and will provide the latest information here.
