Free Planning Visits

Once your booking is confirmed, we recommend a free planning visit to help you prepare for your trip and familiarise yourself with the site. Whether you have an existing visit booked with us or are making a new booking, you’ll need to book your free planning visit in advance.  Simply go to the webpage of the site you want to visit and in the book tickets section select the ‘Corporate - Member Admission’ ticket option.

You won’t be able to get in to our sites unless you have pre-booked your free planning visit tickets and have your education booking permit with you to show a member of staff on entry.

Your permit also gives you a 20% discount on the official English Heritage guidebook for your place of choice.
