The Stansted Park Foundation is regularly monitoring the Government website https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public which is providing up to date public information and advice on COVID-19 and includes sections on the number of cases, risk levels and returning travellers from affected areas as well as guidance on actions to take. The Foundation considers this to be the authoritative source of information from which we will take the appropriate measures. The Foundation requests that all members of the public comply with this advice whilst at Stansted Park. Should the situation develop to require a more active response from the Foundation, then information will be disseminated via information signs, social media as well as on the Stansted Park website.

We want to help you get the most out of your visit. We welcome visitors of all interests and abilities. The Walled Gardens, Garden Centre, craft workshops and Pavilion Tea Room all have level access, but some paths in the grounds are graveled.
The Mansion is accessible by wheelchair lift and an inside passenger lift. We regret that we cannot accommodate large powered wheelchairs in these, please call ahead of your visit to find out more information and to avoid disappointment.
Please download our access statement or ask for a copy if you'd like more information. We also welcome feedback to help us improve our service.
The Garden Centre car park is the main car park for access to all Walled Garden attractions and the House.
There is a designated ‘disabled’ car park next to the Pavilion Tea Room for Blue Badge holders and beside the entry to the Garden Centre.
House visitors with mobility limitations may be dropped off beside the House by arrangement.
We regret that only assistance dogs are permitted in the gardens, maze and House. There is no shade in car parks. For reasons of public safety dogs are not allowed at general public events (dog themed events are an exception). Dogs on footpaths and bridleways in the Forest must be kept under close control.
Stansted Park supports the South Downs Responsible Visitor Charter for sustainable tourism.
