Pre-Trip Information

If you book workshops at the centre a full itinerary will be sent to you prior to your visit. If you book the Victorian or World War II Classroom please be aware that the maximum number of children able to be seated comfortably is 20.

We suggest the following:

Leave all students on the coach while you collect information from Reception and meet education staff/facilitators.

At Reception pay for any workshop charges and confirm the final numbers in your group, if you wish your school/organisation to be invoiced please let the Education Officer know at booking.

Please try to call us if you are in any way delayed.

Deposit your bags with Education Staff/assistants in the School Room or leave them on the coach.

Any problems during your visit please go to the Reception.

We accept that some cancellations of school bookings are inevitable. However, staffing at the Centre is based on the level of bookings with rotas sent one week in advance. If a booked workshop is cancelled with less than five working days notice, the full amount will be payable. This is to cover staff costs only.
*This does not apply to self-directed visits.

Remember to take all your belongings with you.
