Barnards Events

2021

Whilst it is impossible to predict the impact of Covid-19 on our openings, our working assumption is that some Covid regulations will continue through July 2021.

We plan to open on Thursdays from 22nd April till the 2nd September.

It is important to note that all garden visits must be pre-booked and payable via the National Garden Scheme App or NGS Website

We are now able to offer light refreshments.

The Barnards Miniature Railway (BMR) will operate a Covid-19 safe regime and all seats will be purchased on the day via Contactless payment only on a first come first served basis.

The railway, subject to Covid-19 regulations at the time, will operate each Thursday of the school holidays and on both of our Sunday openings on June 27th and September 5th.

We will be operating the Barnards Miniature Railway every Thursday during the school holidays from 11am until 4pm. We are pleased that we are now able to extend the journey further to Sittooterie Halt which makes the ride 1 1/2 Miles return. The trips will be every 20 minutes and last about 25 minutes. The trains will be hauled by diesel locomotives from our heritage Mardyke collection, although steam locomotives may appear if available on some trains. On some days it may be possible as an add on to ride a shorter route on one of our sit in Electric Multiple Units to Belvedere and back.

The prices are:

£7.00 return to Sittooterie, All ages, Under 3’s free.
£5.00 return to Belvedere ( certain days only). Under 3’s free.

If you are a Barnards Season Ticket holder then feel free to come at any time that we are open. Should  you bring a guest we can take a contactless payment on the gate.

Please note: All events are subject to change due to Covid Regulations.
