During Half Term, Monday 25th to Sunday 31st October from 4pm to 5pm, we are introducing a quiet hour for those guests wanting to access a quieter, more relaxed session.  During the hour, music around the site will be turned down and performances and street theatre will be limited. Tickets for this hour are strictly limited and therefore we'd ask those visitors not wanting to access a quieter experience to book from 5pm.
