Visit a Place

Check for closures

Make sure that the property you plan to visit hasn’t had to close at short notice.

Our sites sometimes need to close at short notice due to adverse weather, for essential maintenance work or, for the working churches in our care, private services. 

We advise checking ahead if the forecast is poor or if you are making a long journey. From Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm short-term closures are listed below. At the weekends and on bank holidays this page will not be updated, and any unexpected closures will be posted only on X (formerly Twitter) using #HSclosure. If you have an urgent enquiry related to a site closure and your booking over the weekend please get in touch with

Check for longer term closures (e.g. conservation work):
