Visit - Cafe and Shop Open. Galleries re-opening Summer 2021
Our Shop and Café are open from 30th April! We will open 5 days a week Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 09:30-17:00 and Sundays 10:00 - 16:00. We are doing everything we can to make your visit as safe and enjoyable as possible. All the safety measures we are taking are in line with Government advice and are in place to minimise risk to our visitors and our team. Our Shop and Café are operating a one-way system, and there are separate entry and exit points. In line with government guidelines we will not be allowed to have queues inside the building. If we are too busy for you to enter, we really hope you will visit us again soon. To enter the building for the Cafe and Shop, please use the main entrance doors on the ground level. Proceed up the stairs to the Cafe and our team will be there to welcome you. Our lift is for use of customers with accessibility issues only. If you are able to, please leave the Cafe via the terrace door and down the terrace steps. Again, if you need the lift, please use this for exiting and one of our friendly team members will be there to help you and ensure this happens in a safe manner on the day. Shop customers enter and exit safely through the main entrance on ground level. You are politely requested to wear a face covering inside the building (exemptions excluded). If you are visiting our Café, once seated, you can remove your facemasks. Upon entering the building, you are politely requested to use the hand sanitiser provided and also before touching any products, surfaces and handrails. Perspex screens have been fitted at all our till points. All team members are trained in COVID-secure procedures. In our Shop, if you can, please minimise your contact with the merchandise on display. Our team members will be on hand if you have any questions about products or want any help. Card payments only are currently accepted, for the safety of both our customers and staff in the Shop and Café. A strict ongoing cleaning routine is in place throughout to help the safety of customers and staff. Social distancing is also in place and please be aware that a member of our team will, where necessary, politely ask that this is adhered to for your safety. Signage is in place throughout the shop reminding you to social distance. If you are unsure of anything, please just ask. Our friendly team is here to help and even though we will be wearing masks, we are still smiling just the same.

Did you know?
During and just after World War II, golf ball supplies reached crisis point, due to a shortage of rubber. In 1942 the Government forbid the remoulding of old balls. Following R&A intervention, the ban was lifted. One of the arguments used was that the Army Medical Council encouraged golf as a remedial exercise for wounded personnel.
