The castle and shop will not open until a later date and the website will carry details of any changes.

From this Sunday the castle will be selling up to 150 'garden only' tickets on a first come, first served basis for each Sunday and Wednesday from 2pm-5pm until further notice.

"You can apply for up to six tickets by emailing us at [email protected]. Payment will then be made by contactless card when you arrive at the castle," said a spokesman.

" If you do not have access to a contactless card then please bring the precise amount of cash for your tickets as we are not able to give change. The charge is £6 per person for garden entrance (no charge for children under 10 years). We ask all our visitors to practice social distancing at all times, keeping two metres away from staff and other visitors."

The Broughton Castle tearoom will serve takeaway teas, coffees, cakes, ice-cream and other drinks.

The visitor toilets situated in the car park will be open but only one person at a time can enter the ladies and gents in order for social distancing to be possible. The toilets will be cleaned each hour.
