Coronavirus (Covid-19)

All you need to know about changes to Newstead Abbey & Gardens during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

As our top priority is to ensure the Health and Safety of customers and staff, we have set up this dedicated page.

Owing to the recommendations from the government to avoid non-essential travel and maintain social distancing, having initially closed Newstead Abbey buildings & facilities temporarily, we are now closed until further notice. When we reopen, we will let you know via our website.


  • Newstead Abbey Historic House¬†& Formal Gardens¬†are closed, including all car parks, cafe, shops, play areas & toilets.
  • Newstead grounds remain accessible to local residences to maintain social distancing.
  • All public events & activities are postponed and suspended with immediate effect.
  • Car parking season tickets will be extended for the closure period.

Our customer service teams are working remotely and will be in touch with customers affected by these changes, to facilitate how we can best help. Please do contact us if you have any arrangements you would like to discuss. We are unfortunately unable to update by phone at this time, though we endeavour to answer via email as soon as possible.

We are also working closely with suppliers and events vendors to work through postponing any planned activity over the coming weeks, and we will continue to update you via this dedicated page when event activity can be rescheduled.

We continue to pay close attention to all government recommendations being updated through the Nottingham City Council page and will keep you updated about Newstead Abbey & Gardens via our page here, so please continue to check this page.
