Our booking system will be slightly different to before. Customers will be asked to book one of our 30 minute time slots (18.00-18.30 | 19.00-19.30 | 20.00-20.30 (21.00-21.30 on Thursday's)) and we will then contact you to confirm an exact arrival time. This allows us to be as organised as possible with your arrivals, and limit any crowding to make your experience as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.  

Our capacity has reduced so to avoid disappointment please book early.
