Tiny Tours - visiting in the time of the virus
Please read the information to below to learn about the measures we are taking to keep you, and us, safe during the time of the virus.
We will be introducing a series of Tiny Tours, starting from Friday 10 July, that will allow small numbers of visitors to return to the Hall. Tours must be booked in advance, and will be take a maximum of ten people. For dates, or to book, please click the red button below.
As I type, guidelines are still being drawn up for the re-opening of historic properties; and so we are currently working to a number of Government guidelines relating to shops and gardens; plus guidelines drawn up by Visit Britain and the Professional Association of Self Caterers. These have led us to introduce the following measures:
Guided tours will be limited to a maximum of ten people.
Tours will begin outside and five 2m distances will be marked out so that you will know where it is safe to stand.
Once entering the Hall you will be given a face mask to put on, and hand sanitizer to clean your hands.
Seating will be spaced 2m apart, with a 4m wide aisle down which to walk. This applies in all three of the main rooms.
The smaller rooms will be open for couples or individuals to look into, but not enter; as they are used by the family, who we are trying to protect.
The “shop” (postcard table) and plant stall will be available, and by the time we open we will have contactless payment facilities. Gloves will be available and we ask that you wear a pair to handle any of the items available.
The Undercroft loo will not be available, but the facilities in the Gatehouse will be open. We cannot provide you with antibacterial soap (septic tank!) but there will be soap, hot water, disposable paper towels and more hand sanitizer there.
We will have implemented a new cleaning regime, combining the PASC and Visit Britain guidelines with the National Trust visitor toilet cleaning guidelines.
All touchpoints will have been thoroughly disinfected with Peritab – an NHS approved anti-viral disinfectant, that kills 99.999% of all bacteria and viruses.
We hope that the above information has gone some way to assure you of our social distancing and hygiene measures. If you have any questions, do please get in touch – either on 01765 692303 or email@example.com
Bring Your Own Bubble Tours
If you’d like to bring your own bubble of friends and family on a private tour, do give us a call to see what dates we have available. We can seat up to five households safely, and a maximum of 10 people – and don’t forget the take-away cake. Tours are not strictly child friendly, as they are historical in nature.
