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.

Booked workshops

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

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 and Knaresborough Castle and Museum are free to schools within the Harrogate district. Schools outside the district incur a small fee per pupil (the current child admission).

Class sizes

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.
