Visiting as a group

All groups of over 10 people (including school groups, adult groups and community groups) must pre-book their visits using our booking form.

 

  • We require a minimum of two working days’ notice for group bookings.
  • Completing a booking form does not guarantee your visit, your group may be turned away if you do not have a booking confirmation email. 
  • We are a small museum, so large groups are asked to split into smaller groups of 15 or fewer.
  • Please ensure adequate supervision of groups of under-18s – groups of students without adequate supervision will be turned away.
  • Find out more about taught sessions for visiting school groups
