We have changed the opening arrangements of our sites to play our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19. The gardens and grounds of Walmer Castle are open to local visitors and Members to use for exercise during the lockdown period. You will need to book in advance in order to visit, and we ask everyone to bear in mind the government’s latest advice on travelling before you plan your visit. All the interior spaces will be closed, but the grounds and gardens remain open. We have additional safety measures in place at all of our sites including social distancing, enhanced cleaning and limits on visitor numbers to protect the health of all our Members, visitors, staff and volunteers. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.
Prices and Opening Times
You now need to book timed-tickets in advance to visit Walmer Castle and Gardens. We have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance.
The time shown on your ticket is the earliest you can arrive, and you can arrive at any point within an hour of that time. You're then welcome to stay for as long as you like.Book your Visit
