Arrival Times

To keep everyone safe and having a great experience, there will be restrictions on the number of guests that can visit at one time. Every visitor (including Lotherton members) must book a prebook arrival time on your chosen date. These are:

  • 9.30am – 11.00am
  • 12.30pm – 2.00pm
  • 3.30pm – 5.00pm

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