Arrival Times

To make sure everyone has the best experience, there are restrictions on the number of guests that can visit at any one time. Every visitor (including Lotherton members) must book a Christmas Experience Admission Ticket with arrival time on your chosen date. These are hour slots from 9:00am daily. You can arrive anytime within the hour slot after your chosen arrival ticket time. 

We estimate you will spend around 3 hours on the estate, however you are welcome stay longer if you wish.
