Group visits

Because of the number of requests we receive for group visits, if you are planning to visit with a number of others (eg a class or tour group) please complete our Group Visit booking form as far in advance of your proposed visit as possible. This will enable us to determine whether or not we will be able to accommodate your group on the preferred date(s).
