test and trace

English Heritage is legally required to request and record the contact details of customers and visitors aged 16 years and over. If you are able to confirm you have your own contact collection system for every individual (including staff) aged 16 years and over ahead of your arrival your group will be able to bypass the check-in step on arrival outlined here. Otherwise any members of a group aged 16 years and over will be required to check in via the NHS Test and Trace app, using the NHS QR code posters displayed at the site entrance. Please factor this into your travel/arrival time.

Any group members who do not have the NHS Test and Trace app must be recorded by you as an attendee on your visit. These records (date, time of arrival, name, contact number or email or address if they don’t have a number) must be stored by you for 21 days, and must be made available to NHS Test and Trace if requested. We may ask you to verify that you have such a system in place, e.g. we may request your company policy or risk assessment.

By confirming your booking you are acknowledging that your group will either use the NHS QR code posters on arrival, or will use your own contact collection system.

For more information about how we are handling your personal data for NHS Test and Trace please visit this page.

Coach parking

Please use the Coach Drop-Off Point to allow group members to disembark, and to pick them up at the end of their visit. Daytime parking for coaches is available to the East of the Main House where you will be directed by a member of staff after drop off.

Guided tours

Please note we are not currently operating guided tours at any of our properties due to social distancing measures. We hope to have an update soon on when we can start our guided tours again.

There is no better way to fully appreciate the scale, grandeur and history of Wrest Park than by taking a guided tour. We offer guided tours of the gardens, Archaeological Collections Store and Wallpaper Rooms. For more information and to book contact Reception on 01525 860000 .
