Booking Information

All sessions last 1 hour 30 mins and are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Groups will need to arrive 20 minutes before their session begins. The earliest session start time is 11:15 so you would need to arrive at 10:55. The last session finishes at 17:30. For the best chance of securing a session, please be as flexible as possible when expressing arrival and departure times, as we can only book you in based on your preferences. Please be aware due to high demand a slot is not guaranteed.

Tour slots have a capacity of 36, including adults, and a minimum group size of 12 people, including adults. One slot is available per school. The minimum ratio of adults to pupils depends on students’ age:

Age 5-7: 1 adult to 7 pupils

Age 7-18: 1 adult to 15 pupils

Please note that if you are below our required child to adult ratio, we will not be able to book you in. If your ratios vary, please note the reason why in additional requirements. We are only able to accept additional adults if their attendance is related to the additional needs of the group, which should be noted further down on the form.
