July 2021 - Covid 19 update – Facemasks

 Although we understand that the wearing of face masks will not be mandatory after 19th July, we have decided for the ongoing well being of our visitors and staff, to ask that face masks continue to be worn during tours of the hall and in indoor spaces such as the shop and tea rooms.  We will, of course, be reviewing this decision on a monthly basis, and in the meantime, thank you for your co-operation.

 

We are delighted to confirm we are able to re-open the Hall and Gardens again from Tuesday, 18th May, 2021.

Whether you want to visit the Hall, watch the birds of prey, explore the gardens and woodland walk or enjoy our various special events, you’ll find lots to choose from, here on our website, with fun for all the family.

To visit the Hall and Gardens – Tickets must be booked in advance via our website – particularly as tours of the Hall are limited due to Covid-19.

The Leighton team is looking forward to welcoming you back!
