Guidelines for home education groups

  • In order to obtain the subsidised entry rate, we require booking at least 2 months in advance, and payment is due 6 weeks prior to the visit. We often sell out of the subsidised entry rate, so please do provide as much notice as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
  • If you book with less than 6 weeks’ notice we will require payment immediately and your cancellation and amendment deadline will be 5pm the same day that the booking is confirmed.
