Staying open through October

Pining for normality in locked down Britain will only bring us pain but adapting to a new normal – that has possibilities.

Holdenby House has created a Covid-safe garden experience for its Sunday openings that proved extremely popular through the summer.

A statement released by Holdenby House said:

“We have had such a great response to our garden openings this year, that we have decided to keep them open for at least another two Sundays “ says James Lowther, owner of Holdenby House.

Normally, the gardens would have closed last weekend , at the end of September but the opportunity to  explore the Holdenby’s historic gardens and magnificent Falconry Centre has meant that take-up of the presold tickets has been very enthusiastic and has shown no sign of diminishing.

“I think the chance to walk the beautiful grounds where King Charles 1 walked 375 years ago and see the sort of birds of prey that he would have flown is still a powerful draw” says James “ And we wanted to stay open as part of Radio Northampton’s celebration of our wonderful county and its treasures. “

Holdenby was one of only 8 houses in the UK to appear in the Smithsonian Channel’s

“ An American Aristocrat’s Guide to Great Estates “ .

Tickets for the opening may be purchased online at www.holdenby.com.
