House & Grounds are closed until Easter 2021 due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

As a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and the various restrictions imposed, the Trustees of Wilton House have taken the difficult decision to postpone the opening of Wilton House and Grounds until Easter 2021.

During the crisis the practical implications of opening whilst maintaining social distancing between our staff and visitors would be impossible to guarantee. As a consequence it is felt that in these exceptional times the most appropriate course of action to ensure everyone's safety is to remain closed.

Over this period we will be taking the opportunity to undertake essential maintenance and restoration works which are difficult to complete during the normal open season.

We look forward to welcoming visitors back to Wilton House in 2021.

Dogs in cars
The RSPCA advises that animals should never be left unattended in vehicles in warm weather. Dogs can die from heatstroke in as little as 20 minutes: leaving the car in the shade, the car windows open or providing a bowl of water inside does not help. Please be aware that the Police/RSPCA may be called if dogs are left unattended in vehicles. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Please Note: No dogs allowed in the House & Grounds unless they are Assistance Dogs.
