The gardens and grounds have been open since early June with social distancing measures.

Visitors will need to book a garden ticket with an arrival time online to limit numbers and then upgrade to a castle ticket at the castle entrance.

The measure is in place to limit numbers in rooms and castle entry cannot be guaranteed for everyone.

The news follows the reopening of Leeds Castle near Maidstone this week and the grounds and gardens of Dover Castle and Walmer Castle opening on Saturday, July 4. Lullingstone Castle grounds near Eynsford will reopen on Friday, July 3.
