How to book a group visit

Booking is essential for all group visits and guided tours.Discounted group rates apply only to pre-booked groups.

Contact our booking office:
Telephone 03000 290901
International calls only +44 (0)1273 292820


We may refuse admission for groups who have not booked or who arrive late.

We require at least two working days’ notice to cancel or amend your booking or the fee may be charged in full. If, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to cancel a guided tour, the guiding fee will not be charged and the group can enter unguided.

We will allocate your group a timed slot. This helps us to avoid overcrowding in the building and ensures an enjoyable visit for your guests. We appreciate your help in adhering to these times. In the event that you are delayed please contact the Booking Office on 03000 290901 and we will do our best to find another slot for your group on the same day.

If your group arrives late, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer you a tour but will always do our best.

Group leaders are responsible for the behaviour of the group and must remain with them at all times. Any groups posing a threat to the health, safety and enjoyment of other visitors will be asked to leave.

Children aged under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
