Group Booking Form
Once the date of your visit has been confirmed with the Museum, please complete the Group Booking Form.
If you would like a Guided Tour, please request it when booking your Group visit. There is currently no charge for Guided Tours.
Group Booking Payment
A £50 deposit for Group Visits is required one month before your visit. This amount will be taken from your payment on the day. The deposit is non-refundable if your visit is cancelled less than a month before your visit.
Refreshments & Lunch
Our welcoming café overlooking the Italian Garden serves hot and cold drinks, snacks, cakes and simple light lunches (soups, paninis, jacket potatoes).
We specialise in scrumptious sandwiches and delicious cakes for our group visit lunches, served on delightful vintage crockery. If you would like lunch as part of your Group Visit, this will need to be pre-booked, with a 50% deposit paid one month before your visit.
Please note that once numbers for lunch have been confirmed (at least 2 weeks before your visit), the full cost of lunch is payable, even in the event of cancellations.
Please fill out and return the Lunch & Afternoon Tea Information and Booking Form.
Only food and drink purchased in the Cafe can be eaten there. We do have an outdoor picnic area which can be used by anyone who wishes to bring their own lunch.
