Plan your visit
As at the 15th July 2020, Mount Stuart House, Gardens and Policies remain closed. There is no date confirmed for reopening in 2020.
After serious consideration, and in light of recent announcements from the Government and World Health Organization, Mount Stuart Trust regretfully announces that site opening on Friday 3 April is postponed until further notice.
Our team have worked incredibly hard over the past months in preparation for opening, and this decision has not been taken lightly. The health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff is our top priority in light of the ever-changing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
To clarify, with immediate effect there is no access to the House, Gardens and policies for both current members and ticket holders. All tickets and memberships pre-purchased will be valid for future visit dates once we reopen.
We will continue to monitor the situation and review this decision. Any changes will be published via the website. For any urgent enquiries please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will respond as soon as possible.
