As a result of the advice offered by Government relating to the Covid -19 pandemic we have concluded that we have to cancel planned open days and guided tours for the time being.
At present the Open Day on 5 April and all group visits in March and April have been cancelled. We will review the situation in early April and decide what action we need to take then based on the latest available guidance from the Government and the NHS.
Our apologies for the inconvenience and disappointment this causes.
