If the date you wish to visit is highlighted pink this means that the online allocation of tickets has sold out for this day.
To offer a pre-booking facility, we have had to change the way our tickets are listed. If you are visiting as a family you will still enjoy the same saving as our former online ‘Family Ticket’ when purchasing two adults and three dependants (please click the family ticket).
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
We do not have time slots for pre-booked tickets. You can arrive anytime between opening at 10am- last admission at 4pm (close at 5pm).
You are welcome to buy tickets on the door, but you do need to be aware that we currently have a maximum capacity that we are enforcing. If you arrive and we are at this capacity, we do stop admitting walk ups for a period of time. Any walk up availability is on a first come, first served basis.
HHA members do not need to book ahead, you can turn up on the required day with your cards or temporary passes and go to the ticket office, you are guaranteed entry. We have a provision set aside for anyone with HHA membership even when we are at full capacity.
If you are disabled and require a ticket for you and your carer, please visit the ticket office on the day you wish to visit. You will be guaranteed entry, even if we are at our capacity.
