COVID-19 VISITING INFORMATION
Updated 19th July 2021
The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our number one priority so please take a moment to read about the changes we have made 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. Please contact us and we will be happy to transfer your tickets to a new date.
For the safety and comfort of our visitors, we have decided to maintain social distancing and other mitigation measures, including face mask use indoors (unless exempt) until at least the end of August. This is in accordance with industry best practice and guidance issued by the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.
Before You Visit
Tickets must be booked online in advance for the day and time slot you wish to visit. This applies to members as well as day visitors.
This is to help with social distancing on arrival and enable us to carefully control the number of people on-site.
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 at 4.30 pm.
During Your Visit
When you reach the ticket office, which is in our Shop, please wear a face covering 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. Our larger exhibitions have one way systems 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.
We request that face coverings are worn in the Shop, Café (when not sitting down) and in our indoor exhibitions and buildings. 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. There will be lines on the floor to help you queue in a socially distanced way. 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
