Wash your hands often.
Follow the floor markers for directions and please ensure you keep to these.
Face coverings must be worn by visitors over 5 years old.

Where possible, we would prefer card payments for items in the gift shop.
A relaxed visit is intended for people who may find it difficult to navigate Callendar House. These visits may be particularly beneficial to adults and children with complex support needs or with autism spectrum disorder and their families and carers. We will make sure that staff are on hand to help and if you are finding it difficult to follow the route, we can let you enjoy the areas you just want to see. We are offering three relaxed entry times per week.
Up to 10 people from 4 households can visit the house or teashop together, as per the government guidelines on socialising indoors.
Our opening hours remain the same: 10am – 5pm, Wednesday to Monday.
Toilets will be open on the first and second floors for use by one person at a time. A member of staff will be available to help you if needed.
Collecting customer contact details is now a legal obligation (as of 14 August 2020) and as such Falkirk Community Trust will be collecting basic customer contact details for those visiting Callendar House. If a case of COVID-19 has been reported and linked back to Callendar House via the Test and Protect Scheme, NHS Scotland may contact the business by phone to request staff and customers’ details to allow contact tracing to take place.
As per government guidelines, you can attend with a maximum of 10 people from 4 households. Although children under 12 do not count towards the maximum numbers, we need to know they are coming, so please phone 01324 506850 to book a table if your party exceeds 10 once children under 12 are included.
