CAT closed to all visitors

CAT is temporarily closed to all visitors to support public health measures.

The safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, guests and the wider community is our absolute priority at this time.

What this means for you:

  • Our visitor centre is closed to visitors. For advice on environmental solutions, nature-based activities to keep the family entertained, and details of our online events, please visit our #CATatHome pages.
  • CAT’s Graduate School of the Environment postgraduate degrees will be delivered via distance learning only.
  • Postgraduate open days have moved online. Interactive webinars with tutors and students give a feel for what it’s like to study at CAT. Find out more and book your place.
  • Our Zero Carbon Britain course has moved online. Find out more and book your place.
  • We have cancelled all other short courses, group visits and events to 12 June, and will continue to review all bookings four weeks ahead of the scheduled date. Where cancellations are necessary we are adding dates later in the year, and we hope you will rearrange your visit.

If your booking is affected by any of these changes you should have received an email from us. If you have not received this, please email

The situation is under continual review – please check back here for updates.
