CUMBRIA'S Holker Hall will be closed for the next two days. 

The popular tourism location will be closed for a short time.

Holker Hall announced on social media: "Please note that the Hall & Gardens will be closed for the next two days - Wednesday 3rd & Thursday 4th November as we set up for our biggest Winter Markets to date. 

"The safety of you, our visitors as well as all our staff and contractors is of paramount importance. Given the weather over the last few days and how busy the site currently is, we don't feel it safe to open up the gates while there is so much activity. 

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused but we can't wait to see you all to celebrate the start of the festive season this weekend.

"Tickets are still available on our website:, or you can purchase tickets when you arrive at our kiosks."
