Payment for an education visit must be made at least two weeks in advance of the visit and can be made by credit card, cheque or BACs.
As a condition of the entry costs for these visits, leaders and accompanying adults must supervise their groups at all times during their visit. We offer one free adult per 8 paying children.
Adults leading groups are expected to follow the supervision guidelines and behaviour expectations set out by the HCC. These guidelines can be found here (Coming Soon). Any failure to follow these guidelines can result in a group being asked to leave the HCC and group management being contacted.
If you amend your booking, cancel or no show on the day of your visit, the HCC reserves the right to charge an administration fee of £25.
As part of an education booking, you agree to complete our feedback form after your visit which shall be emailed to you. We require this to be completed within two weeks of your visit, or there will be a fee of £25.
These prices cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, promotion, discounts or third party payment methods. Membership cards can be used but they will not count towards the free adult ratio for supervision purposes.
Education groups must make a single payment for their visit.
