COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Safety
The safety and well-being of visitors and our traders is our utmost priority. These are the principal measures we will have in place on the day:
Face coverings must be worn inside the Mansion. We advise wearing one also whilst browsing the stalls outside.
A one-way system will be in operation indoors.
Stalls indoors and outdoors will spaced further apart than usual.
Contactless payments encouraged whenever possible
Hand sanitising stations will be in place at the main entrance, and elsewhere indoors and outside the building.
Toilets and high-frequency touch points sanitised regularly by Mansion cleaning staff..
Monitoring numbers of people entering and leaving the building, to allow social-distancing and prevent overcrowding.
There will be a Contact Tracing system in operation. You must register your visit by using the NHS Covid-19 app on your phone to scan the Mansion’s QR code displayed at the entrance to the building (if you don’t wish to use the app, or your phone doesn’t support it, we ask that you provide your name and phone number which we will retain on a written register for a maximum of 21 days).
Please don’t come if you feel unwell.
Please follow the latest Government restrictions whilst at the market, and do not mix with anyone you do not live with, or have formed a support bubble with, inside the buildings.
We recommend using public transport and/or walking, or cycling, to the market if at all possible, as parking is limited.

The new car park has limited spaces. It is no longer permitted to park along the carriageway access road to the Mansion (you risk a ticket if you park on, or over the other side of, the double yellow lines). If you do prefer to arrive by car we advise avoiding the busiest period (11am-2pm). Note that vehicle entry is only via the Beckenham Hill Road entrance ( Sat Nav: BR3 1SY) opposite the Church of St Augustine. If your GPS takes you elsewhere, try SE6 3PU instead, or use ///follow.skinny.fade
There is on-street parking close to the Downham entrance on Old Bromley Road (Sat Nav: BR1 4LE), or near to Ravensbourne Station, (Sat Nav: BR3 5HE). Please respect local residents, and park considerately. The Mansion is an enjoyable 15 minute stroll across the Park from both entrances.
