Plan your visit and work out the best itinerary for your group
Once you have decided what you want to do, look at our useful tool below to see how long we recommend you spend doing each activity, how many people each activity can accommodate at once, and how long it takes to walk between sites. This will help you understand what is possible for your group.
Our Travel Trade and groups team is on hand to help you plan the best visit possible, so whether you would like recommendations for what to do, help with planning your itinerary, or anything else, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see below information about the length of each activity and the capacity per session. Due to the nature of our sites, we limit the capacity of our tours for the comfort and enjoyment of our groups and other visitors.
