Plan Your Visit

We don’t want to crowd or rush our visitors so we limit the number of entries per day, giving our guests the space and time to fully absorb and appreciate the sculptures and the experience.  For this reason we operate an online booking system with pre-booked tickets only.

Entry: £10.00 per person.  No children under 12.   No concessions.

We are open from 11.00am to 5.00pm and most visitors spend at least 2 hours with us, but we welcome you to spend all day.

We do not have catering facilities but you are welcome to bring a picnic, or if you would like to eat out, we have recommended a few local pubs, restaurants and hotels on our LINKS page.  We do have toilet facilities with disabled access on site.

We encourage you to take your time, relax and enjoy your visit.

Booking in advance is essential – so please click here to make a booking.

Please note that the Bookings Calendar only opens a couple of months ahead, but we are open all year round.
