Currently the entire park is open for normal summer hours (8am – 9pm Mon-Fri, 9am – 9pm Sat & Sun) and the car parks and outdoor public toilets are in use. The lower car park is now reserved for those visitors over 70. Brambles Café is now open in both the kiosk at the children’s playground and the castle Tea Rooms – with strict social distancing restrictions.
