You now need to book timed-tickets in advance to visit Lyddington Bede House. We have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance.
The time shown on your ticket is the earliest you can arrive, and you can arrive at any point within an hour of that time. You're then welcome to stay for as long as you like.
You can currently book for visits until 30 September. Tickets for the autumn will go on sale soon. We’ll update this page when we have more information available.Book your visit
