With the warmer weather approaching, explore a day out in history this spring.

Follow our outdoor trails in search of dragon eggs with our Easter Adventure Quests this April. We're also celebrating Members' Week from 12 April with a range of activities online and at our historic places. Members really do get more so sign-up today to enjoy the benefits.

Plus, we'll also be rolling out a fun-filled events programme over the coming months, but do bear in mind government advice to minimise travel during this time.

Start of Season 2021

Over 60 historic sites are now open for you to explore this spring, and we’ll be opening more in phases over the coming months. You can book tickets now to visit any of these sites up to 16 May. See which sites will open and find out how to book your visit. 

Visits must be booked in advance. If any dates change, bookings will be automatically cancelled and refunded – there's no need to contact us. We look forward to seeing you!
