School groups that wish to enjoy The Lightbox at their own leisure are able to book a self-guided tour at a cost of £15 for up to 30 children (a maximum of 60 children are able to visit at any one time). This is so that we can ensure an enjoyable visit and that any resources are available for you to guide your group around the building at your own pace. Some of our resources are available as downloads here which can also be used as teaching aids during and after your visit.

Please note that if you come to us for a self-guided tour without booking, we cannot guarantee that there will be space for your group.

Group size: up to 60 children max per visit
Suggested Session duration: 2 hours
National curriculum topics covered: History, English, Art and Design, Design and Technology, Citizenship.
Cost: £15 +VAT

Advanced booking is essential for all school groups, including self-guided tours. Visiting groups who wish to have Lightbox led activity sessions must book at least two months in advance of their visit. In order to ensure an enjoyable visit, there is a maximum class size of 30 students per visit.
