Grotto Re-Opens for 2021

Finally! After nearly six months of closure the Grotto will be re-opening on 19th May. Initially, we'll be open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.


Pre-booking is essential - even if you're a Friend of the Grotto - and we did sell out most days last year... We will be releasing tickets three weeks in advance, and we'd advise you to book your visit as early as you can.


The information you need is here with more details on our FAQ Page - check it out if you're thinking of visiting us.
