Like all stately homes, Holdenby House had to close to the public when the lock-down started in
March. Now, the historic gardens are reopening again every Sunday from August 2 to September 27 and tickets go on sale today (July 20) on

For the first time since last September, visitors will be able to take in Holdenby's beautiful Grade I gardens including the working Kitchen Garden, Silver & Fragrant borders, King Charles' Walk as well as the original Base Court Arches from where Charles was taken away in 1647.

There will be a simple one way system around the gardens and tickets will only be available in advance, online through the Holdenby website. Hand sanitisers, screens and all other necessary precautions have been taken and Icarus Falconry Centre will also be open, allowing visitors to view their majestic collection of birds of prey.

Connie's Vintage Tea caravan will be providing refreshments to enjoy after the visit.

"We have missed our visitors and are really delighted to be opening again" said Holdenby's owner, James Lowther. "We've put in a lot of hard work to get the gardens ready and to do so in a way that is enjoyable, safe and fully Covid-19 compliant".

Holdenby has recently been one of only 12 British stately homes to be on TV in both the UK & US in "An American Aristocrat's Guide to the Great Estates" on the Smithsonian Channel.

Gardens open 11-4pm every Sunday from August 2 to September 27.Tickets available online in advance from July 20 through enquiries to [email protected].
