Bookings and Costs
Costs of visits
All bookings made before the end of March 2013 will be charged at the price that has been frozen for the past two years (£200 per class). However, any bookings taken after this date will have to be charged at £250 per class in order to cover the increase in our costs during the past two years.
You could choose to bring two classes on the same day. As well as being able to provide the same visit for both classes, we are also able to offer a mixture of class visits; tailoring the day to meet the needs of both of your classes.
To get the most out of your day we recommend arriving at 9.30 and leaving at 2.30. Longer or shorter hours can be accommodated - we will fill whatever time you have available with fun, hands on and engaging activities.

During the visit
The class teachers are ultimately responsible for the discipline of their pupils on or off-site for the duration of the visit.
If the children would like to bring a little spending money they can visit our small shop at lunchtime. Price list
Centre places are in high demand. Places which are cancelled need to be offered to other schools as soon as possible.
The centre is in the quiet village of Horton Kirby with excellent transport connections. The easiest route to the Centre is via Eglantine Lane off the A20, the route is shown in yellow on the map.

The Centre has negotiated reduced hire charges for visiting classes. The following companies may be able to offer a discount depending on locality of school in relation to their secondary pupil pick ups and time of hire:
