Waddesdon Manor Reopens its Grounds with Help from See Tickets
See Tickets is now official partner to the National Trust’s Waddesdon Manor, selling advance entry tickets to its grounds which reopened on 3 June.
Waddesdon Manor was looking for a ticketing partner to support its social distancing measures which include limiting on-site capacity and removing walk-up sales. Visitors can now purchase advance entry grounds tickets by choosing from hourly time slots at the venue’s new ticketing site here
Matthew Hulme, Head of Visitor Operations at Waddesdon Manor said: “If we didn’t have the ability to cap visitor numbers to our grounds, we simply would not have been able to reopen. See Tickets has enabled us to welcome back visitors in a way which meets social distancing requirements and we’re pleased to say that initial sales have been very strong.”
Rob Wilmshurst, CEO at See Tickets said: “Social distancing means a new approach to ticketing and increasing numbers of venues and attractions are looking at how they use time slots, capacity limits and advance online sales to allow them to reopen. We are here to equip clients with all they need to move forward during this challenging time.”
See Tickets has created white label ticket sites with time slot entry for the Houses of Parliament, Christmas at Kew and FriendsFest. See Tickets is also ticketing partner to Glastonbury Festival, SJM Concerts, Ideal Home Show and Society of London Theatre.
