We work with schools to provide visits to suit your needs and are always happy to discuss any ideas you have. You can either book a led workshop or a self-led visit throughout the year.
Half day workshops are 2-2.5 hours and a full day 4 hours. Exact times are arranged with each school to suit your travel times and school days.
Half day sessions cost £50 for schools within the Harrogate district and £60 for those outside.
Full day sessions cost £90 for schools within the Harrogate district and £100 for those outside. This is the full cost, there is no admission charge as well.
Winter bookings (October - Easter) at Knaresborough Castle cost £75 for half a day and £125 for a full day.
All bookings will receive an invoice shortly afterwards. A deposit of 40% will be retained if the booking is cancelled less than three weeks before the session date.
Self-led visits we can book you in to suit your class. Talk to us for recommended times and activities during your visit.
Self-led visits to the Mercer Art Gallery are free to all.
Self-led visits to the Royal Pump Room Museum are free to schools within the Harrogate district, within usual opening hours. Schools outside the district incur a small fee per pupil (the current child admission).
Entirely self-led visits to Knaresborough Castle and Museum are free to schools within the Harrogate district. If you require a tour guide and a sallyport (secret underground tunnel) visit or to arrive before the 11am opening time there is a small charge to cover staffing, calculated according to the time the extra staff is needed for. Schools outside the district incur a small fee per pupil (the current child admission) plus a small charge if early opening is required.
Maximum class size at any one time is 35. However, please contact us to work out the best way to organise a visit for your group, whatever the size.
