The house and grounds are open from noon to 5 p.m. (last entry 4 p.m.) on Wednesday, Sunday & Bank Holiday Monday afternoons from Easter until the end of September.
When numbers permit, visits to the house are by means of conducted tours. On busier days visitors are invited to explore the house independently.
During the course of the season of normal openings there are a number of special events. Please note that the character of some of these events has a radical effect on the experience offered to the visitor.
Ingatestone Hall also hosts other events throughout the year. Some of these and other private events require the closure or restriction of normal access to the house and grounds

We do our best to facilitate wheelchair access but no 16th century house is ideal in this respect. In the house, there is no access to the upper floor and, although most of the grounds are accessible, there are some steep slopes and soft surfaces which may be difficult to negotiate. The House is about a 200 metre walk from the car park.
