Advanced booking

You don’t need to book your visit in advance, but you will always get the best price and guaranteed entry by booking online ahead of your visit. The prices shown here include a discount. The admission price will be higher if you choose to pay on the day you visit.

You can book your advance ticket online up to 8.45am on the day you want to visit.

Your booking is for the site/event only and does not guarantee a car parking space, which may carry an additional charge.

You can arrive anytime from the time slot you book, and stay as long as you like.

If you are a Member and wish to book, your ticket will still be free. Please remember to bring your English Heritage membership card with you. Members are able to book tickets for those included in the membership only. Any additional bookings made will be chargeable on site.

Some of our sites can get very busy, especially on Bank Holidays. Our busiest times are between 11am and 2pm, so if you prefer to visit at a quieter time you may wish to visit outside of these hours.

Please remember to bring your booking confirmation with you when you visit.

You can currently book for visits up to 31 October 2021, when the site will close for the winter.
