Attractions Booking Step-by-Step Guide

1 – Read through our Learning Programme and webpages to select the options you want.

Joint tickets can make your visit and workshops considerably cheaper so contact our Reservations team if you would like a quote for your group. Check through the Important Information document for any terms relating to your selection.

2 – Contact our Reservations team on 01904 615505 or email

Make sure you give us your preferred dates and times of your visit ready to check for availability, and let us know how many children you are booking for. If you are making an enquiry about a session, please let us know the age of your pupils and any special education needs they might have so we can tailor your package to your requirements.

3 – Remember to book any extras to make your visit run smoothly.

Let our Reservations team know if you want to reserve a lunch space or pre-order souvenir packs!

4 – Our Reservations team will offer you a schedule incorporating all the elements you need for a successful day.

Let us know if you are happy with the proposed arrangements and our team will make the booking and send you your confirmation paperwork – please have full contact details for your school/organisation available at this point.

5 – Check through your confirmation paperwork to ensure the details are correct and provide us with any additional information about your group.

Return the paperwork via email to or post it to us: Reservations Department, DIG, St Saviour’s Church, St Saviourgate, York, YO1 8NN.

6 – If you have booked a trip to visit us, ask our Reservations Team to organise a teacher familiarisation visit to allow you and your colleagues to tour the attractions free of charge.

Our attractions team will be happy to answer any questions you might have about your trip and you can familiarise yourself with the locations of our workshops and facilities.

7 – If you have booked an outreach or virtual outreach, our Reservations Team will organise a chance for you to discuss your requirements with a member of the Learning Team.

For virtual outreach, this will be a free test connection using Skype, allowing you and the Learning Team to troubleshoot any technical issues before the booked session.

8 – If you have booked a loan box, our Reservations Team will make arrangements for you to visit us and collect it.

Why not hire a loan box you can pick up on the day of your visit and use it to support your learning back in school?

9 – Count down to the big day and enjoy your session!
