Our current status during the COVID-19 outbreak

Update, Wednesday 13 May

 
Following the government announcement on 10 May, some people may assume YSP should now reopen.
 
Unfortunately this is not possible. YSP is a charitable trust and an accredited museum, not a public park. It is an outdoor attraction, therefore as government guidelines currently state, we will remain closed. 
 
We are very busy planning a phased reopening, which places great emphasis on the health and safety of both visitors and staff. Once we do reopen, we will have new health and safety measures across the Park including limiting visitor numbers. We need time to plan and install these new measures in order to ensure that we are prepared, so that we can open safely and we can stay open.
 
Please respect our decision to remain closed at this time, and do not visit the Park until further notice.
 
In the meantime, be safe, and keep connecting with us via digital channels.
 


Previous Announcements

 

As of 23 March 2020, YSP is closed until further notice.

Following the fast-changing nature of the COVID-19 outbreak and Government advice we have taken the difficult decision to close YSP to the public.

Staff, volunteer and visitor safety is highly important to us. We experienced high visitor numbers this weekend which made it more difficult to embrace social distancing, therefore, this decision is aimed at urging everyone to stay at home and keep safe and well.

We are an independent charity and being closed during the spring and summer peak period will be incredibly difficult for us. We rely on our income from car parking, catering and retail to fund our exhibitions, educational programme and to maintain the historic landscape.
 
If you have enjoyed visiting YSP, believe in the importance of our work and are able to support us at this challenging time, we would greatly value your help to safeguard our future. Please donate if you can.
 
YSP Friends
We thank our YSP Friends for their continued support. We will be giving a three-month extension to all YSP Friends memberships during this period of closure.
 
Events and courses
If you have booked on to a YSP event or course, which has been cancelled during this time of closure, we will be in touch directly to arrange a refund. This may take us longer than usual due to reduced staff capacity.
 
If you could consider donating your refund – or part of it – it would be much appreciated.
 
Our autumn events are still scheduled to take place and you can book onto these now.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment the decision of closure has caused. We thank you for your understanding.
 
Please continue to follow the official advice and keep yourself and others safe and healthy during this tough time. We look forward to welcoming you back to YSP once it is safe to do so.
 
Thank you from all of us at YSP.
 
Please keep checking our website and social media for updates.
