Each ticket is valid anytime between 10am and 3pm (the site will be open 10am – 4pm), you can arrive anytime between these times and there is no need to reserve car parking. Our café, shops, history museum and outdoor play area will be open throughout your visit.

Tickets are limited each day and we are expecting to reach capacity, please ensure you pre book passports in advance.


Also join us for some family fun, traditional halloween traditions. Have you ever wondered where some of our Halloween traditions come from?

Throughout October Half Term (22nd October – 30th October 2022) we will be running drop in workshops where you can learn about and have a go at 3 historical Halloween and Samhain traditions.

You will be making:

– Salt dough skulls for our ancestors

– Fire themed paper lanterns

Activities are running from 10:30 – 15:30 in our learning centre (above the museum). Suitable for children aged 2+, tickets are required for all children over 2+ and they must be accompanied by an adult at all times (adults do not need a ticket).

This event is a drop in session, with the ticket you can attend anytime between 10:30am until 15:00pm. The family learning activity will close at 15:30pm.

Pre booking for these workshops is encouraged to help us manage capacity. Tickets are £2 per child (adults go free with children). Book your tickets now by visiting –
