About this event

Back again for 2021, our incredibly popular Heritage Open Week will see Rothamsted Manor open its doors for a week of self-guided house and garden tours, and fun family activities. 

The Heritage Open Days theme for this year is ‘Edible England’ which fits perfectly with what we are all about at Rothamsted. 

Plans are still being formulated for this year, but we encourage you to save the date in your diaries.  We will be bringing you an exciting programme of activities which will be announced soon.

We will have a pop-up café in operation serving hot and cold drinks and delicious snacks.  Alternatively, you might fancy a delicious cream tea.
We accept card payments only.

Coronavirus and social distancing

We are proud to have earnt the industry standard ‘We’re Good to Go’ from Visit Britain.  It means we have implemented the Government’s COVID-19 guidance, understand the guidance from Public Health England and have a COVID-19 Risk Assessment in place.

If Government guidelines change, we will always adapt our procedures accordingly, but at the time of writing, the following applies:

  • Hand sanitiser stations are placed throughout the venue
  • We have implemented a robust cleaning regime ensuring high touch points are cleaned after every use and rooms are cleaned down after each occupancy
  • We ensure staggered arrival, minimal cross over with other groups and minimal interaction with staff
