WHERE DO I PARK

There are two carparks but we usually recommend using Wyresdale road. For accessible parking please call us on 01524 598500 and we will advise you where the last scene is and the best car park to use.

HOW MUCH WALKING IS INVOLVED?

There will be slow guided walks of approximately 5-10 minutes between each scene. Some of these walks will be up and down steep slopes. These routes are wheelchair accessible.

WHAT IS THE SEATING LIKE?

Some scenes have seats to sit on, and some do not. You can bring along your own folding chairs or mats. There will be a designated area for folding chairs at each scene.

CAN I BRING A PUSHCHAIR FOR MY CHILD / BABY?

As space is limited and access can be difficult pushchairs are not allowed. Babies carried by an adult in a sling/papoose do not need a ticket.

DOES MY CHILD NEED A TICKET?

All children over 2 years require a ticket. Under 2's are free. 

WHEELCHAIR / MOBILITY SCOOTER USERS

Because the route takes you up and down steep slopes, you will require somebody physically fit to assist you. If you haven’t already, please call the Box Office on 01524 598500 to request a free ticket for this person.

WHAT TO WEAR

Warm outdoor clothing, appropriate footwear for all outdoor terrains, and waterproofs are essential. It is also advisable to bring sun lotions and midge spray.

Refreshments are available before the show and during the interval, or you can bring your own picnic (plastic tumblers only).
