We are proud to accept Tempo Time Credits

The Time Credits scheme is an exciting initiative that rewards volunteering within the local community. In exchange for their time, participants earn currency that can be used to access a range of activities.

1 Time Credit can be exchanged for any day ticket.


Annual Pass Prices

All of our annual passes are valid for one year from the date of issue, making them a great way to follow our ongoing development and keep up with new arrivals. You'll be saving money too, as they pay for themselves from the fourth visit! 

Enjoyed Your Visit? SAVE UP TO £21 off your Annual Pass Purchase!

We'll deduct the value* of your day's admission from any Annual Pass purchase, if buying in person on the day of your visit. Simply ask at the admissions desk before you go!
