A few things we ask


Dogs are not allowed in the Tudor grounds or inside at the Rhubarb Shed Cafe.

We have lots of outdoor space surrounding the Tudor site that is very popular with local dog walkers and they can enjoy an outside visit to the cafe.

The Tudor grounds are a no smoking area.

We kindly ask you to smoke outside of this area by exiting through the Discovery Centre.  We ask that you dispose of any cigarette ends in the bins provided once back on site. 
The Ruins

The ruins are over 450 years old and we want them to be there for many more years to come. We also don't want any one to hurt themselves. 

We ask that you do not climb on the ruins but please feel free to touch!
Mind your step

The ground can be uneven across the site due to buried archeology so please mind your step. The grounds are grassed beyond the Discovery Centre. Access to the first and second floors of the Turret House are via a stone spiral staircase.
