This is an update regarding our arrival times and timed slots, as we have made a few changes.

Going forward, when making a booking with us you will be asked to select the admission time for when you want to visit. These time slots are in half an hour increments and last for 1 hour.

This means you can arrive any time within your 1 hour admission time and stay for as long as you like once you are in the building, therefore revoking the 3 hour timed slots we used to have in place.

Any queries or questions feel free to contact us at
