It continues to be a very tough time for the whole tourism industry and we welcome the announcement from the Chancellor that tourist attractions can benefit from a VAT reduction to 5%. We are pleased to pass this saving on to our guests on our standard tickets, however due to the variable pricing that we operate online, this saving may not always be immediately obvious. We are however, offering this VAT reduction on our child Gift Vouchers, which given our fixed price for them offers great value for money. If you wish to visit us but are not sure when, please consider this option to obtain the best price for your visit.
