Places to Visit - London and the South East

A selection of free-to-enter and staffed sites remain open for local visitors and Members. With colder weather and shorter days, our sites are often quieter in winter, so their opening hours are a little different. You can see which sites are open near you below.

In line with tiered local restrictions, our sites will adapt to follow the latest guidelines and some areas of your visit might be restricted. For instance, in higher tier areas, some sites may close temporarily or indoor areas (including some facilities) may be closed. Full details of up-to-date visit information, including what the tier guidance means for each site, can be found on the individual property pages.

Please check the local tier guidance before you travel.


Before you visit

The wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers remains our priority, so we have a range of COVID-secure safety measures in place. Although things might look a little different when you visit, you can still enjoy exploring our historic places and you’ll still be given a warm welcome by our friendly staff and volunteers. Please remember to take your face covering with you at all times as they’re mandatory in some areas.

You need to book your visit in advance.

Please check the tier guidance where you live, stay local (ie in your own village, town or part of your city) and avoid travelling to a lower or higher tier than the one you are travelling from. If you cannot visit due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will refund any pre-booked tickets. Please see here for details.
