Welcome back

We are pleased to announce that Orleans House Gallery, shop and café are open to visitors. For your safety we have made the following changes to your visit:

  • Orleans House Gallery is now in tier two restrictions. Our reduced capacity allows visitors to enjoy the gallery whilst keeping a safe distance from others. Tier two restrictions mean all visitors must stay socially distanced, unless they are from the same household or in a support bubble.
  • As per Government restrictions, face coverings are now compulsory for adults and children over 11 years of age.
  • In certain areas of Orleans House Gallery, a one-way system is in operation. Please follow the directional signage.
  • We have increased the cleaning of our public spaces to keep visitors safe.
  • Capacities in certain areas will be limited so we may ask you to wait before entering some spaces.
  • Hand sanitiser locations will be available throughout our buildings.
  • As from Thursday 24th September we will be using the new NHS COVID-19 QR code for track and trace. It will be available to scan at entrance doors and reception desks in the main building, the Stables Gallery and the Stables Cafe. It will require visitors to download the new NHS COVID-19 app on their smart phone.
  • For visitors who do not have access to a smart phone, we will be continuing to take visitors’ names and contact numbers on arrival. For large groups we will ask for just the lead member’s contact details. Details will be stored separately and securely and disposed of after 21 days. Within the 21 days, we will only share the details with the NHS Tracing team, and only if they request it.
