HOW LONG DO TOURS LAST?

The tours last approximately 70 minutes no matter what time you enter. This is excluding queuing times which may vary.

WHAT'S THE BEST TIME TO VISIT?

Good question. We love a dark Halloween night ourselves, but for the rest of the year there's just one thing you need to remember. Like any amazingly funny, brilliantly designed and executed (ha ha) attraction... we are very popular. Our guests love us and tend to come back time and time again.

So... make it easy on yourself. BOOK A TICKET IN ADVANCE. That way you:

  • Get to visit when YOU want
  • Know that your place is reserved
  • You will get the best available price & could save up to £8.
  • AND you get priority entrance over the loveable, but ultimately less-organised folk who turn up at the last minute.

Right. Does that make sense? Great, so you know what you have to do. The best way to be sure you have time is to grab a ticket in advance.
