The house is open Wednesday to Sunday between 10am and 5pm – last admissions 4.15pm. Eastgate House has an admission fee of £5.90 for adults, £3.20 concession, £2.75 for children or a family ticket for £14.40 - the jewel replica trail is £1.

Visitors can put their newfound knowledge to the test at The Guildhall Museum (open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm) with a spot the difference quiz between images of the real crown jewels and replicas for £1. For younger visitors, an under-fives eye-spy trail will be available between Saturday, 28 May until Saturday, 4 June for £1. The Guildhall Museum has no admission fee.
