How to Book
It is always a good idea to give our Group Travel Department a telephone call in the first instance to discuss dates, travel options and the availability of seats.
Once the date for your visit has been agreed, private groups will be asked to complete a booking form and pay a non-refundable deposit of £70.00 to secure the booking. If a food option has also been booked, the non-refundable deposit due is £150.00.
Coach operators and bona-fide tour operators will be asked to confirm travel arrangements by email with no deposit payable at the time of booking.
Please note that final numbers should be received 30 days prior your visit to support us confirming booking of seats needed and help you in delivering the best visitor experience for your guests.
We ask this enabling us to provide seating for both groups visitors and everyday travellers without causing overloading of carriages during high visitor days.
Appropriate tickets will be dispatched by post together with an invoice for the total amount due.
Payment for all travel must be made at least 30 days after your visit, for the finalised numbers agreed 30 days prior your visit.
Changing your booking . . .
We understand that you may need to amend your booking prior to the date of your visit. Whilst you may have booked months in advance, changes may be made up to 30 days prior to travel. If you make a change, a revised ticket will be dispatched together with a revised invoice.
CHANGES ARE NOT PERMITTED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF TRAVEL
