BOOK YOUR TICKETS HERE

 

As we monitor the ongoing risk of Covid-19, we may reintroduce a limited number of “on-the-door” ticket sales later on in the season, but this is largely dependent on the progress of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

We have made changes to our booking process and the house & gardens themselves to ensure we remain compliant with social distancing measures. Please read the below carefully before continuing to book your tickets.

 

TRACK & TRACE

Unlike in 2020, Government Guidance surrounding the parameters of our Track & Trace responsibilities have changed. Whereas previously we were only required to collect contact data of the lead visitor, in this case, the visitor who's name the booking is under, we are now required to collect contact data for all visitors over the age of 16. During the booking process you will be given the option to add this data after your payment has been taken, or you will be asked to confirm that you will sign in using the Track & Trace app upon your arrival to Penshurst Place. If you do not have a device compatible with the app, you will be able to provide your contact details with our staff at the entrance, instead.
