If you prefer to lead your own visit you can choose from a selection of downloadable activity sheets or talk to our staff about hiring our facilities and equipment. It is important that you book in any self-led visits so that we can advise you of any limitations to access when you visit and ensure that you are not charged for coach/car parking during your visit. If you are interested in booking a session, please telephone 01733 234193 or complete the enquiry form. A member of our education team will then be in touch to discuss your individual requirements.
