COVID -19 Secure

To help make your visit as safe and enjoyable as possible, please read the following information before  visiting. 


Our priority in reopening the State Rooms of Tabley House is to safeguard the safety of visitors, staff and volunteers, as well as other occupiers of the site.  To achieve this we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19.

Personal protection and face coverings

Face coverings are still recommended in enclosed areas.  Whilst Tabley has a number of large rooms, due to the historic nature of the building and the need to care for the Collection, all the windows must remain firmly closed.

Please note that staff and volunteers will be wearing face coverings except in exceptional circumstances.

Hand sanitiser

Hand sanitiser will be available for use by visitors at the front door, and in the toilets.  Should you require further usage please speak to a volunteer and they will assist you.

We ask that you do not use your own supplies of hand sanitiser in the State Rooms due to the danger of droplets landing on our historic floorboards, carpets and other furnishings. Once again if there is any difficulty please speak to a volunteer and they will assist you.

Social distancing

Social distancing is  still recommended when possible.  To help this happen visitors will be booked in at 15 minute intervals when possible.  Should separate ‘visitor groups’ come close to each other due to a desire to spend more time in particular rooms, we ask that you try to maintain a  reasonable distance from each other.  Again volunteers will be on hand to advise and assist visitors as necessary.

Feeling unwell

If you or anyone you live with is not feeling well, please postpone your visit and come and see us another time.

We would be grateful if could to let us know if you will not be taking up your visiting slot for this or any other reason.

Further information

For further information about being COVID-19 secure please see information on the website


To help make your visit as safe and enjoyable as possible, please read the following information before  visiting. 


Please stop using satnav once you are on the A556 from Junction 19 or Northwich, or A5033 from Knutsford.  This is because it will direct you the quickest way, not the correct way to us.  Please instead follow brown signs, then our own burgundy coloured signs.


On entering the Tabley Estate from the A5033 please follow our burgundy coloured signs (which take you off to the right) to our gravel car park.  Once there please continue to follow the signs on foot,  walking around the far side of the Chapel, past the Tea Room, and continue to follow the path round to the grand staircase.  Go up the staircase and enter the door at the top.  PLEASE NOTE DISABLED ACCESS IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Once inside you will be asked to sign your contact details form which will already be filled out for you.  Please let us know if there are any changes required to those details.


Tabley is now able to receive contactless payments.  Chip and Pin is also available.  Entry prices are £7 Adults £3 children.


Visitors will be offered a free paper guide providing information about the House, the family, and wonderful treasures of  the Collection.  However there will also be our usual enthusiastic volunteers to answer any questions you may have.


In the rooms the volunteers will be sat behind roped areas so visitors and volunteers can both apply social distancing rules.  If you wish, they will be delighted to tell you more about the history of the House, the family and their Collection of art, furniture and memorabilia.

We look forward to welcoming you to Tabley and hope you enjoy your visit.
