Tips for Groups

We understand how much work a group organiser or tour operator has to put in to make the day a success, so we have put together some top tips and things you will need to know when planning a group visit with us.

  • • We offer a special discount for groups of 10 or more people. Advanced bookings are required.
    • We welcome groups of all sizes and abilities. There is ample free coach parking by the admissions building.
    • For visitors with walking difficulties, it may be possible for coaches to drop off in the centre of the village. Please request this on booking.
    • Guided tours are offered most days (excluding Event days) at 11am and 2pm for the outside areas and tram depots and at 12.30pm in the Exhibition Hall.
    If you require a private guide solely for your group, this is subject to availability and a cost of £35.00 per guide.
    Workshop Tours may be available for a group of no more than 15. Pre-bookings required. Please contact us to check availability.
    • The Museum is accessible for all (see below) with ramps and lifts to all buildings, smooth routes and dropped curbs for wheelchair users. There is also a specially modified access tram to carry wheelchairs.
