There will be an additional quiet hour between 10am- 11am for people with Autism or similar additional sensory/social needs. During this time no music will be playing and there will be fewer people/crowds. Spaces are limited for the quiet hour and must be pre-booked online.

We will be open to all from 11am with last entry at 1pm and activities finishing at 3:30pm – To avoid disappointment we highly recommend that you pre -book tickets online as there are limited places available.
