How do I pre-book a time slot?

It is essential that all guests book tickets online to guarantee entry before you visit.

Guests who arrive without a timed-entry ticket will be advised to go online and book the next available time slot. Please be aware that weekends and holiday periods at the attraction is our busiest time and therefore we may have limited capacity.
