Sandringham postpones reopening due to coronavirus concerns
Sandringham officials have this afternoon announced that their April reopening will be delayed until further notice.
A statement read:
“In line with the latest Government and Public Health England advice, and for the safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff, the April reopening of Sandringham House, Museum & Gardens will be delayed until further notice, with the Visitor Centre, including the café, shop and play area also closed from 5pm Friday 20th March 2020. A limited card-only kiosk will remain open.”
Those who have purchased an admission ticket online will be able to use it through to October once they reopen and season tickets will be valid for 12 months from the reopening date.
They are still allowing visitors to walk in the Country Park but implore patrons to keep a distance of 2m from other visitors at all times and to maintain good hand hygiene. Parking will also be free during this time. The toilets within the café will also remain open.
The Duke of Edinburgh was helicoptered from his residence at Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate today to join the Queen at Windsor Castle.
