This form 'expands' to show more editable options depending on the tabs you need. For example: to enter new admission prices or opening times, click 'yes' on the question, 'Is your property open as a tourist attraction for day visitors?' to reveal all the fields that can be displayed on the 'Visit' tab.
Different content appears on different tabs; which are applicable will depend on the kinds of access your property offers.
Please provide as much information as possible about your dates, days, and times for opening and closing, as well as when the season starts and when it finishes.

You may want to mention what there is to see and do, mention points of interest for different audiences (such as children, history buffs, art fans, keen gardeners, etc), and facilities like shops and cafes.
If you accept pre-arranged group visits, please provide prices and booking details, and any special provision (e.g. refreshments, additional date availability, etc)
Do you make special provision for school visits? If so please give explain how teachers can get in touch to arrange one.
Include special features, such as time spent with the owner, or refreshments offered. if you also offer day-visitor access, make clear how a private tour differs.
If you don't collect feedback from tour attendees, it may be worth considering; recommendations are an important factor in people's decision to book tickets.
If you offer your own pre-booked private tours (not through Invitation to View), please provide a link, or contact details, for how people can buy tickets.
You can describe individual rooms or areas, and may wish to include details of any optional extras that are available, such as dinners and breakfasts, meeting the owner, etc.

If you offer any form of accommodation or exclusive use hire (e.g. weddings, conferences, events), please provide a link or contact details enabling people to enquire or book.
Provide information about getting to your house/garden by public transport, car, taxi, bicycle, and foot. You may differentiate that info by type of access if you wish (e.g. day visitors, wedding guests, pre-booked groups, etc). Please also provide a What3Words locator for each relevant entrance. A map will be included on your page automatically.
Please provide as much advice and guidance as possible on how, to what extent, people with disabilities or related challenges can access your house or garden, and list any special provision you have made to help them make the most of their visit.
The more extensive you can be, the better. Readers will be interested in family history, architectural development, your property's contents, and who lives in the property now or how it is run.
