UPDATED 18 October 2020

Groombridge Place is now open including the gardens and most of the children’s adventure play areas including the Giant Tree Swings, Crusoe’s World and the Board Walk. The main cafe is now also open for snacks, coffee and cake.  There is also a kiosk at Crusoe’s World offering drinks, ice creams and snacks.  Picnics are allowed in the picnic fields.

The birds of prey displays take on days when the attraction is open at 12 noon and 3.00pm (currently Wednesday to Sunday). The tree top walkway and maze will remain closed. The canal boat will also not run due to social distancing restrictions.

To ensure we keep visitors and staff safe and to avoid queues at admission we ask visitors to please pre-booking online and choose from the 15 minute time slots available.  You can book prior to your visit or on the day itself.

From Monday 14 September, it will no longer be legal to meet socially in groups of more than 6, unless you are in a household (and support bubble) of more than 6 people. This will apply to visitors to Groombridge Place until further notice and we are therefore limiting the number of tickets which can be booked by one person to 6.  On arrival you can show your ticket confirmation from a mobile device, there is no requirement to show a printed ticket unless you wish to.   Please keep to the latest government social distancing guidelines while visiting the attraction.

We will be open Wednesday to Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday) but will be open every day throughout October half term for our Halloween event which takes place between 24 October and 1 November 2020.
