In light of the current Coronavirus situation, we request that our visitors pre-book online, for a specific day ahead of your visit.Visitors who have already booked will be given priority on arrival. This will enable us to monitor visitors’ arrival and limit cash transactions. If you do not have a pre-booked ticket, please be patient if you are asked to wait for as minimum amount of time as possible. Pre booking ensures that we can better monitor visitor numbers and maintain your safety. Please pick a date and book the appropriate tickets, and, where there are specific events included in a day, this will be stated.
