Friday 20 July – the manor will close to the public at 2pm

Friday 7 September – the manor will open to the public at 1pm

Monday 30 July to Tuesday 7 August – Due to the hiring of the gardens at Preston Manor by Brighton Pride between these dates, the external footpaths between Preston Manor and the Coronation Garden will be closed temporarily. The path leading from Preston Park into the Walled Garden (via the Preston Twins elm trees) will also be closed.

Alternative north-south routes between Preston Drove and Stanford Avenue are along the A23 London Road, or along the eastern boundary of Preston Park via The Ride or Preston Park Avenue.

The Manor will maintain its normal opening hours for visitors throughout this period, but the Croquet Lawn and Walled Garden will not be accessible to visitors to the Manor until Wednesday 8 August.
