BOOKING TIP:
Please note that our booking system still has 'arrival slots' in place (we used this system to staggered entry times during Covid restrictions), however, visitors are able to turn up any time from 10.30am, whichever slot you choose. So if morning slots are all booked, simply book an afternoon slot and come whenever is convenient to you!
