Based on the latest advice from Public Health England and the UK Government, The Red House is open Thursday to Sunday, 11am-3pm.

Before your visit

We have made changes to the site to ensure the safety of our visitors and team. They include a new audio guide for the whole site which can be accessed on your smart phone so please bring headphones with you. We also have a limited number of handsets if you do not have a smart phone. Please note that visitors are required to wear face coverings during their visit unless they are exempt.

We also recommend that you bring your own refreshments including a picnic which you can enjoy in the garden.


Please pre-book your visit to The Red House site by calling the box office on 01728 687110 (open 10am-2pm daily) or emailing [email protected] and await confirmation of your booking. We have introduced timed slots at 10 minute intervals from 11am to 2pm to assist with maintaining physical distancing. Please arrive a few minutes before your time slot to limit queuing. Advance booking is advisable to avoid disappointment, otherwise you will have to wait until the next available slot.

What to expect on your visit

On arrival you will be welcomed by a volunteer and asked to wait until it is safe to enter the reception area. A Perspex screen has been installed at the reception desk.

We have introduced a one-way route through the Gallery, Library and House. It is fully accessible and not complicated, but you will receive a map on entering. Volunteers and staff will be available to help you.

We ask that everyone respects the physical distancing measures we have put in place. Visitors are required to wear face coverings unless they are exempt.

Hand sanitiser dispensers will be available throughout the building and staff will be regularly cleaning and disinfecting door handles and surfaces where doors cannot be held open.
