What other measures will be in place around the house?
As well as a one-way system, we have other measures in place to keep everyone safe.
Please wear your mask at all times while at the admissions desk and in the Museum.
Please use the hand sanitiser provided as you enter. More is available on each floor; please sanitise your hands again if you have to touch the banisters as you go up and down the stairs.
We will ask you to give us your details for Track and Trace (including your house name or number and your post code if you are willing to gift aid your entry fee).
Please do not touch anything in the house other than the banisters, door handles (most of the Museum doors will be open) and the toilet facilities. To preserve our historic furniture, we cannot clean it as required by Covid-19 precautions. We will clean high-traffic areas and the toilets regularly throughout the day.
No more than one household or party will be allowed in a room at once; if there are visitors in the room ahead of you, please kindly wait until they leave the room before you enter.
You will only be able to visit the museum shop at the beginning of your journey around the house. If you wish to shop at the end of your visit, you will have to re-enter via the Museum door, and the volunteer at the desk may ask you to wait until there is enough space for you to browse safely. Please avoid handling anything that you do not intend to purchase. Please then leave through the Parlour Exit.
Staff or volunteers will be happy to direct you or answer any questions you may have.
