How to visit us safely

We’d like to reassure our members and visitors that our main priority remains to provide a safe on-site experience for all. As part of this, we reserve the right to keep in place some on-site precautions to help manage movement around our monuments.

Please respect signage such as one way systems and requests from staff as required. Some of our teams may continue to wear face-coverings in busy spaces, please bring a face covering if you would like to wear one whilst visiting our sites.

We would also ask that you don’t visit if you have tested positive or are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms.
