Sewerby Hall and Gardens has announced that it is to begin charging local visitors only to enter the park from Saturday, 27 March, following the Government’s roadmap announcement for lockdown easing.

This will then relax from Monday, 29 March when the stay-at-home order is scheduled to end.

Between Saturday, 27 March and Sunday, 11 April, the gardens, café (takeaway-only, no seating available), play area and toilets will be open, and admission prices will reflect the limited offer.

Tickets are available on the website for the first phase now and the tickets will be released for the subsequent phases after Government approval. Advance booking is advised to guarantee admission.

If Government restrictions allow, the popular visitor attraction will then proceed to the second phase of reopening on Monday, 12 April, with the zoo reopening and the outdoor seating policy returning to the café.

And from Monday, 17 May, Sewerby Hall itself will reopen to the public, if Government restrictions allow.

It is hoped that from Monday, 21 June the situation will move to the final stage and see the welcome return of events to Sewerby Hall, with the easing of COVID restrictions.

Marie Gascoigne, general manager of Sewerby Hall and Gardens, said: “We fully welcome the announcement of the Government’s roadmap to the phased easing of restrictions as it allows us to plan for the gradual reopening of the hall and gardens.

“We hope that with our own phased reopening, it will result in yet another busy season like we experienced year-on-year, pre-pandemic, and that visitors can get the best out of what the hall and gardens have to offer.”
