Knebworth House, Park & Gardens Endeavours to Remain Open

Knebworth House, Park, and Gardens are working hard to remain open weekends, bank holidays and school holidays between 21st March and 27th September 2020.

During these difficult and uncertain times the health & safety of visitors and staff will remain of utmost importance to management, who have implemented strict practices to safeguard all on site including:

  • Making hand sanitiser available on site for staff and visitor use.
  • Displaying clear signage throughout the site advising staff and visitors to wash their hands regularly and follow the catch it, kill it, bin it guidelines.
  • Enhanced cleaning regimes.
  • Welcoming visitors with a smile instead of a handshake.
  • Social distancing measures.

Knebworth House, Park & Gardens are keen to offer a safe space for families to enjoy the Spring and Summer months ahead in the spacious 250 acres of Parkland, which is perfect for ball games and picnics. The Adventure Playground with Fort Knebworth is another family favourite where children can play together within a controlled environment in the fresh air. The 28 acres of gardens including the Dinosaur Trail is a great location to watch the seasonal flowers bloom while children can follow the trail of 72 life-sized dinosaurs through the wilderness garden.

The attraction wants everyone to enjoy a wonderful day out at Knebworth House, Park & Gardens and would like to reassure all visitors that they are adhering to all guidelines issued by Public Health England and the Government in relation to Covid-19 (Coronavirus).

The Covid-19 situation is being monitored daily by Knebworth House, Park and Gardens and their website and social media channels will be updated as the situation changes. The attraction does however ask visitors to follow government advice and remain at home if you have any symptoms. It will be possible to transfer pre-booked tickets to another day later in the season.

Managing Director, Martha Lytton Cobbold Commented:

“We will keep Knebworth Park open as best as we can and will do our utmost to safeguard the situation so that visitors and season ticket holders may use the facilities. This also enables us to keep jobs going and businesses open. There will be alterations, and we may not be able to offer all facilities all the time, but we will do our best and work with the guidelines issued by Public Health England and the Government. Come and enjoy the country Park and have a picnic in the 250 acres of parkland and see the Spring blooms in the formal gardens. Thank you very much for your ongoing support as we navigate our business through this difficult time.”
