Group Visits

Making a Booking

Pre-booking is essential to limit visitor numbers and ensure effective social distancing. Find out how to book, make a payment and what we are doing to keep our visitors and staff safe.

Our Offer for Groups

We offer a 15% discount (10% for Stonehenge) for groups of 11 or more paying visitors*, if one person makes payment for the group.

We also offer:

  • Free entry for one tour leader
  • Free entry for one coach driver

Please note that all non-education groups must separate in to their household/support bubble or party of 6 on arrival and for the duration of their visit. Social distancing rules apply to anyone not in your household/support bubble.

*The tour leader, coach driver and any English Heritage members do not count towards the group number.

Make your booking

Pre-booking is essential to limit visitor numbers and ensure effective social distancing. There is no limit on the group size but groups may only visit if they separate into their household/support bubble or party of 6 during their visit. Please don't travel to our sites unless you have pre-booked as we won't be able to let you in without your proof of booking.

To book your group visit, make use of our useful contact list. You will also find contact details alongside pricing in our Trade Admission Prices & Opening Times 2021/22 & 2022/23.

Please have the following information to hand to help us check availability and book you in:

  • Date of visit
  • Time of visit
  • Number of visitors
  • Your tour reference or booking reference (if available)
  • Method of transport
  • Method of payment
  • Any other information relevant to your booking request

English Heritage is supporting the NHS Test and Trace scheme and will be using data collected from site bookings to fulfil part of this should the need arise. You can find out more about how we are doing this here.

Keeping everyone safe

Although things might be a little different when you visit, you’ll still be able to enjoy exploring the places where history happened with your groups. We’ve introduced a range of measures to ensure social distancing and maintain high hygiene standards.

  • Our site staff have been trained in hygiene and social distancing and provided with the necessary PPE.
  • Where required, some sites will have markers on the ground to help visitors maintain a safe distance. Some sites will be using one way systems and may have different entrances/exits for group visits.
  • We have installed new welcome information and site-specific sign posts to guide you on your visit.
  • We have increased site cleaning and disinfecting regimes including regular cleaning of high-touch surfaces. Toilets are monitored hourly and cleaned/disinfected as required.
  • There may be screens in place if we can’t separate visitors from staff.
  • Hand sanitisers will be in use across sites.
  • Barriers will be in place to help social distancing, particularly in queuing areas such as toilets and admission areas.
  • Takeaway catering options will be available at some sites.
  • Access equipment/facilities such as lifts, wheelchairs and mobility scooters will be available but you should check availability in advance.
  • Audio guides and some interpretation equipment e.g. costumes and handling items may not be available.
  • Download a copy of our Covid Risk Assessment.
