Event Navigation

TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR VISITORS, COLOURSCAPE HAS CLOSED FOR THE AFTERNOON DUE TO HIGH WIND LEVELS

Colourscape is an inflatable structure, and as such is sensitive to wind levels. Wind levels are continuously monitored and have just reached a point that it is no longer safe to stay open. We are very sorry to disappoint!

SUNDAY

DAY TWO OF COLOURSCAPE!

WE ARE OPEN TODAY 11AM – 5PM, LAST ENTRY AT 4.30PM.

A labyrinth of colour, light and music lands at Charleston this summer! Enter the world of Colourscape and explore countless interlinked rainbow chambers with extraordinary light and colour experiences. And along the way join in with musicians who’ll be playing an array of different instruments.

Colourscape is an unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages. There’ll be a host of free, colour-themed activities for younger visitors including paint your own Rothko, colour wheels and wings; and entrance to our Spring/Summer exhibitions will be half price for Colourscape ticket holders (and free for children under 18).

Make the most of your visit to Colourscape by exploring Charleston’s beautiful gardens for free and/or book a visit to the House (by guided tour on Saturday or as a self-guided visit on Sunday). Tickets are available to pre-book online or can be purchased on the day from the Charleston shop, subject to availability.

Important visitor information

Ticketing

Tickets are priced at £6 for adults, £3 for children (under 16) and free for children aged 2 years and under. Tickets are only available to purchase on the day – no advance booking.

Due to the popularity of Colourscape, we operate a ‘virtual’ queuing system. When you arrive at Colourscape you will be given a ticket with a time slot on, so you don’t have to wait in line. You can go away and explore, and return at the allocated time. There are free drop in art activities in the Barn. Entrance to our ‘In Colour’ exhibition is half price for adults and free for children under 18. We have an on-site cafe in the Barn, and entrance to the garden is also free for all visitors this weekend.

Please note that ‘virtual’ queue times can sometimes be up to a couple of hours – but there is plenty to do on site in the meantime.

There is a no queue policy for disabled visitors, or visitors with additional needs. Please contact a member of Charleston staff when you arrive.
