Bransby Horses Set to Reopen this April

Bransby Horses have announced they are to reopen their doors to the public on Monday 12th April, following the government’s planned easing of the nationwide lockdown. The charity will welcome visitors for a full seven days in the week commencing 12th April, reverting to opening times of Wednesday to Sunday, 10am – 4pm from 19th April. 

Based just a few miles north of Lincoln, Bransby Horses normally welcomes thousands of visitors each year. Following three months of closure due to COVID-19, the charity and their horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, very much look forward to welcoming visitors back and seeing their award-winning Visitor Centre bustling again.

Jo Snell, Bransby Horses CEO, said:

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone in the Bransby family for their support, adaptability and resilience over the last 12 months. Our supporters and teams have been fantastic and we simply couldn’t have continued with our vital rescue and welfare work during the pandemic without them.

The charity is also pleased to offer a Click and Collect service across both the Café and Gift Shop from their reopening date, allowing you to pre-order food and grab a bargain or two, all the while helping to ensure their rescue and welfare work will continue in the future.


Supporters having a spring clean will also be able to drop off donated tack and household items from next month. Donations can be taken to the Visitor Centre during opening hours or to the dedicated drop off area at Walklands House, signposted in the village of Bransby, Monday to Friday during office hours.

Visitors of all ages are sure to have a great day out at Bransby Horses, meeting their four-legged residents and exploring miles of picturesque walkways, perfect for your daily exercise or to grab a coffee from the Café and go for a stroll with a friend. Families can take part in their Easter Egg Hunt until 30th April for £3.50 per child with no need to book.

The charity continues to monitor the latest government guidance and has implemented safe and effective ways to resume its onsite services and activities, certified “We’re Good to Go” by Visit Britain to ensure visitors have a safe and enjoyable time. The new Click and Collect Café service and outside Café takeaway kiosk* will all help support the extra social distancing measures that have been put in place.

Although the petting of animals and some areas are still restricted, visitors can still watch from a distance whilst taking part in Easter activities and enjoying the brand new and improved play park.
