Group Visits

Group Visits

Please pre-book visits for groups of more than 20 people.

For groups with minimum 20 people, group visits are available on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

For groups with over 30 people, Tuesdays and Thursdays are also available to book a Group Visit.

Please note that groups with fewer than 20 people do not need to pre-book their visit, but it is often helpful to let us know you plan to visit so we can expect you.

Standard admission rates apply.

Booking Your Visit

Please contact us at groupbookings@bentleypriorymuseum.org.uk or on 020 8950 5526 to arrange a date for your visit and to discuss your requirements. It is helpful to have a couple of date options in mind before you contact us as some dates may be unavailable due to pre-existing bookings.

Once the date of your visit has been confirmed with the Museum, please complete the Group Booking Form and email it to groupbookings@bentleypriorymuseum.org.uk or post to Bentley Priory Museum, Mansion House Drive, Stanmore, HA7 3FB. If some details, such as group size, are not yet certain, please fill out the form with the estimated details which can be amended or confirmed at a later date.

Guided Tours

Guided Tours are available for pre-booked groups of 20 or more people. There is currently no charge for Guided Tours.

We offer a choice of two 1-hour long guided tours:

Bentley Priory and the Battle of Britain – This tour focuses on Bentley Priory’s critical role as RAF HQ Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain in 1940.

Bentley Priory: The Evolution of an Historic House – This tour touches on Bentley Priory’s role during the Battle of Britain, but also explores the wider history of the house, as a stately home, a royal residence, a hotel and even a girls’ school!

Please let us know which tour you would like when booking your visit.

Group Booking Payment

A £50 cheque deposit for Group Visits is required at least one month before your visit. The deposit is non-refundable if your visit is cancelled less than a month before your visit. The balance of admission (minus the £50 deposit) is payable by lump sum on the day of the visit.

Refreshments & Lunch

Our welcoming vintage Café overlooking the Italian Garden serves a delicious range of light lunches, as well as snacks, cream teas and a variety of decadent cakes.

We also offer groups the option of a scrumptious afternoon tea, served on delightful vintage crockery.

If you would like lunch or afternoon tea as part of your Group Visit, this will need to be pre-booked, with final numbers confirmed by 2 weeks before your visit.

Please note that the afternoon tea selections are applicable to all members of the group, i.e. each person will receive the same sandwiches, scones and cakes based on the menu chosen.

Afternoon Tea Deposit: For our special afternoon teas, we require a 50% cheque deposit paid one month before your visit. The balance for the tea is due 2 weeks before the visit, when final numbers are confirmed.

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.
