To ensure your safety in respect of Covid we will continue to:

1. clean surfaces which people touch regularly
2. identify poorly-ventilated areas and take steps to improve the flow
3. ensure that staff and visitors who are unwell do not come to the Centre
4. ask that tutors continue to keep a record of those attending each session

Set in a magnificent period property this venue is deep in history with an enviable record for hosting a variety of concerts and exhibitions.

At the rear of Ripley’s beautiful lawns rests our Sensory Garden; created with Millennium Lottery funding this garden is for the benefit of all our visitors, particularly those with disabilities.

“…. We received many favourable comments from our wedding guests about the ceremony and reception and it would be difficult to suggest any areas in which there could be improvement. We were made to feel so welcome – almost as if Ripley existed only for us”.  Joanna & Michael – Cambridge
