Visiting Under COVID-19 Alert Level 2

Katherine Mansfield House & Garden is open under Alert Level 2 of the New Zealand Government’s COVID-19 response. If the Wellington region or New Zealand moves to Alert Level 3, we will close immediately.

The health of our staff and visitors is our priority. We are complying with the COVID-19 Alert Level 2 requirements for public spaces and ask that all visitors do the same.

IMPORTANT: Please postpone your visit if you are feeling unwell or have the symptoms of a cold/flu or COVID-19.

You will be required to either use the NZ COVID Tracer App to scan a QR code or provide your details for our contact tracing register once you enter the house. This information will not be used for any other purpose.

A contactless payment system (payWave) is available for payments by card. We strongly encourage contactless payment if possible. If you need to pay with cash, please use the hand sanitiser provided before making your payment.

Please follow physical distancing guidelines (1 metre between our staff and other groups) during your visit. The Government recommends wearing masks in spaces where physical distancing is not possible. Physical distancing is possible at Katherine Mansfield House & Garden, however, you are very welcome to wear a mask during your visit.

There will be a limit of 8 visitors at any one time in the house. You may be asked to wait if another group has just begun their visit, or the maximum number of visitors has been reached. We have seating in the garden if you need to wait.

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer guided tours at this time. If you'd like to book a guided tour for later this year, please contact us and we'll get in touch to make arrangements as soon as it's possible.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions about how the house is operating under Level 2 requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to welcoming you!
