Our education sessions are available for any number of students of any age. We are able to cover all of the key stages and specialist areas upon request.  Because of this we are able to tailor sessions to individual needs, for example, you can have an accompanied session and then allow students to break off and complete worksheets (All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult).

Group admission is subject to various factors; you can view our standard group rates (for more than 10 people) by visiting our admission prices page or contacting us directly. Your booking will be confirmed via email or in writing and the group’s admission fee can be invoiced or payable on the day of the visit.
To discuss your visit or ask any further questions, please contact us and we would be happy to help.
