COVID-19 VISITING INFORMATION
Updated 9th December 2021
The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our number one priority so please take a moment to read about our Covid-19 adjustments so you know what to expect on your day out at Amberley.
If you feel unwell or should be self-isolating, please delay your visit. If you have pre-booked, please contact us and we will be happy to transfer your tickets to a new date.
Under new Government guidance, face masks must be worn in the Museum shop/ admissions area, our indoor exhibitions, on our buses and in enclosed carriages on the train. For the safety and comfort of visitors, volunteers and staff, we also request the wearing of masks in the Café when not sitting down.
Before You Visit
Tickets may be booked online in advance for the day and time slot you wish to visit. Members do not need to book for visits during the week.
Pre-booking helps us to regulate the number of visitors passing through the Shop at any one time and ensure that on busy event days we have sufficient parking.
The 1-hour arrival time slots are: 10am, 11am, 12pm and 1pm. Once on-site you can stay as long as you like until we close.
During Your Visit
When you reach the admissions area, which is in our Shop, please wear a face mask and you will be called forward from the door when our staff are ready – please have your ticket and membership card (if you are a Member) ready. Once your tickets have been checked, please make your way into the Museum and enjoy your visit.
Look out for the Amberley Welcome Team, who will be able to help you with directions and information. We are on a large open-air site so there is lots of space once you have entered the Museum. Please give others space and we recommend only one family group at a time in our smaller buildings. Parents – please take particular care to ensure that your children are safe.
Face masks must be worn in the Shop/ admissions area, in our indoor exhibitions, on our buses and in enclosed carriages on the train. We also request that they are worn in the Café (when not sitting down). Please note that this does not apply to children under 11 or to those who have a legitimate reason not to follow this advice.
There are three sets of toilets on the site with handwashing facilities (and hot water) – in the Limeburners Café, opposite the Print Shop and opposite Connected Earth, at the top end of the site. Each set of toilets has disabled and baby changing facilities. There are also lots of hand sanitisers around the Museum, but we also request that you bring your own with you when you visit if you can. Please wash your hands before and after touching any interactives.
The Café will be offering snacks, teas and coffees and hot food at lunchtime. Payment by contactless card is encouraged. There is seating both inside and outside on the Café Terrace and you may also bring picnics.
Leaving the Museum
Please follow the signs from the Village Green area and you will exit where you came in, with an opportunity to visit the Museum Shop.
Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a short lead at all times.
Please work with us to keep everyone safe and enjoy your visit
