*Higher Education students are those students studying at Level 5 and above.


Rates are available Monday - Friday during term time only.

To ensure good supervision of groups at all times, one adult is admitted free for every five paying primary pupils or every ten paying secondary pupils or older. Any adults above this ratio are required to pay the admission price.

As a condition of the reduced costs for school visits, teachers and additional adults must supervise their groups at all times during their visit.  A list of behaviour guidelines to share with your students is available the pre-visit information webpage.

If you have any questions, please email learning@zsl.org
