COVID-19 (Coronavirus) INFORMATION

The team at Waltham Place are working hard to create a safe and harmonious environment during the current Tier 4 national lockdown. All events are currently suspended and will be reviewed in light of future government guidance. The farmshop will remain closed until further notice. The tearoom has now closed for Winter though we plan to reopen in Summer 2021. For regular updates on opening hours, events, wildlife and our veg box scheme (re-opening in May 2021) sign up to our weekly newsletter by emailing education@walthamplace.com  We wish all our customers and visitors well, at this difficult time.

Garden Tours Available from May to September 2021

In order to stay in line with government guidelines and keep you safe during your visit to the gardens we have put the following measures in place:
• Tours will be led by one gardener. Please maintain a social distance from others in your group.
• We will take the temperature of visitors on arrival, using a non-contact Infrared Thermometer, to check for fever. We ask all visitors to monitor their own health and social contacts prior to the visit.
If you feel unwell, have a fever or have contact with anyone who then develops Covid-19 in the days running up to your visit, please cancel and we will refund or rebook you for a later date.
• Visitors for Garden Tours will be given a designated carpark. Please check your confirmation email for the location.
• Hand washing facilities, toilets, and a water station will be available for your use. A glass of homemade cordial will be on offer at the end of the tour.
• Please advise us beforehand if you have any mobility issues.
• The tearoom and shop are not currently open.

Access

Waltham Place has disabled toilet facilities. There are wheelchair ramps in the ornamental gardens and to give access to the tearoom and shop. The woodlands have natural paths so are not suitable for wheelchairs in all areas.

Dogs are welcome on leads.

Waltham Place has a No Photography policy.
Since 2010, Artur Urbanski,the Polish photographer, has visited places of natural beauty around the world, photographing people as they take their holiday snaps. “Whenever I am somewhere beautiful in the world, I see the same thing. People take out their cameras or mobile phones and try to capture a moment, then, more often than not, they move on straight away. We are losing the experience of being there because we are focused on the technical process of trying to capture it, for the sake of using it in the future, to post on social media, to show our friends, or just to say we’ve been there.” Artur Urbanski.
