Pre-book to ensure entry and save money

To save money and guarantee entry at your preferred time, all visitors should book online before arrival.

For an enjoyable visit, we limit the number of visitors who can enter at any one time, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment at peak times.

When booking, you will be reserving your arrival time. Your tickets will be sent out immediately by email (to avoid delays, nothing is posted).

Please remember to book ALL visitors (including annual members, children, under-2s and carers).
