Advance booking is essential for all school visits, even for self-guided visits.
  • Our taught-gallery sessions book quickly and we advise booking at least three months ahead.
  • Sometimes there may be availability closer to the date, but we require a minimum of 28 days to organise a taught-gallery session.
  • Self-guided visits must be booked no later than two weeks before the date of your visit.
