Group Visits

For groups (10+) we offer tours on Tuesdays. Group visits must be pre-booked and any catering arrangements discussed at the time.

Throughout the Covid pandemic, we have held self-guided tours, providing our visitors with guide booklets. These tours have taken place on staggered time allocations. In 2022 we hope it will be possible to offer guided tours once again; if so, these will normally take place at 2:30 pm and last c. 1hr 15mins.

Educational Visits

Educational visits for groups (10+) are also held on Tuesdays. These must be pre-booked and any special arrangements discussed in advance.
