We want you to have a safe and enjoyable visit. During your visit, we ask you to:

Please keep your distance from others (2m). Follow the directional signage.
Use the hand sanitiser provided. Please note card payments only.
Wash your hands often. Any questions? Our Visitor Experience team will be delighted to help.
