  2. Ask about our workshop programme.
  3. Before ringing the reservations line check you have the date and time of your visit ready to check for availability, preferably with a range of possible alternatives if your desired date is not available.
  4. Although we will always do our best to accommodate your group’s requirements, we are grateful for at least four weeks notice when booking workshops, outreach or Virtual Viking Outreach.
  5. Once you have booked, check you have received your confirmation letter from us and that all of the booking details are correct.
  6. Check you have the adequate number of adults accompanying your class. York Archaeological Trust recommends a 1:6 teacher pupil ratio.

  8. School parties should allow one hour for a visit to JORVIK and Micklegate Bar, and 90 minutes for a visit to DIG. Barley Hall visit times vary according to your booking. We request that groups arrive on time; owing to high demand, late-comers may be asked to join the queue or put into another time slot.

School parties booking ‘A Day in the Life of a Tudor Child’ all eat lunch at Barley Hall. Please note that pre-booking is essential.
