Book a school session

Booking is essential for all our learning sessions. Please book at least one month in advance.

We’ll be in touch shortly after receiving your form to confirm the session or discuss alternatives if your preferred date is unavailable.

Adult supervision

Groups must bring appropriate adult supervision. Our adult to child ratio is:

  • 0 to 3 years: one adult to three children
  • 4 to 12 years: one adult to five children
  • 13 to 18 years: one adult to ten children

If your group does not have the minimum number of adults we reserve the right to refuse admission.


The cost is £130 per session. Once your session is confirmed we’ll send you an invoice for the full amount. Invoices must be paid two weeks from the invoice date.

Limited bursary places are available. For more information please contact our learning team on or +44 (0)20 7751 2432.

Risk assessment

We expect teachers to make their own risk assessment before their visit. We have developed a school sessions risk assessment guide to help.


Our sessions and trails can involve visiting many areas of our site.  Download our map for schools to help find your way around.


Our large lawn is perfect for picnics in nice weather. We also have indoor lunch spaces that can be booked to use either before or after your session. If you’d like to reserve a lunch space, please request this on your booking form.
