Making the most of your visit

We’ve been welcoming school visits for 20 years and can provide some excellent advice to help you make the most of your visit.

Split into smaller group sizes: We recommend dividing large groups into small numbers of 15 to 20 pupils and before you arrive, ask us to help you prepare a timetable for each smaller group. To avoid unnecessary delay, it is also helpful if you can sort the children into prearranged groups by the time you arrive.

Lunches: There are several snack bars on the Park as well as the GreenOak Cafe selling everything from smoothies to sandwiches, snacks, freshly cooked meals, ice cream and hot and cold drinks. School trips are also welcome to bring their own picnics and eat outdoors at our picnic tables or under cover in the Puzzle Barn if it’s not too busy.

Gift shop: Depending on the season, the Acorn Gift Shop can be very busy from 1:00pm -2.30pm. We advise school teachers to organise at least some of the children’s shopping earlier in the day.

To go through the gift shop, larger groups need to be split into groups of no more than twenty children at a time; therefore sufficient time needs to be allocated so your entire party can complete their shopping before your preferred departure time.
