Peak periods can be very busy and therefore we recommend that you consider booking a school visit outside of peak season to have the most enjoyable visit and to get the best prices.

Please note that we do not accept payment upon arrival and only accept payment by BACS transfer, card over the phone, or by postal cheque at least 10 days before your visit. Click here to download our BACS form.
