Member Tickets - Advanced Booking Recommended

Keep up to date with our reopening plans and see the Frequently Asked Questions.

We recommend advance booking online to guarantee entry. 

On our dedicated page about visiting, select the site you wish to visit. There will be an option to book member tickets. You do not need your membership number to book. Select the tickets appropriate to your membership category and for the date/timeslot you require. You should include any children under 5 visiting with you on your booking. If you wish to book tickets for non-members, you should do that as a separate transaction. You will receive an email confirmation with your order number - take this with you (printed or on your phone) for your visit, along with valid membership card(s), or membership confirmation email.
