School groups that wish to enjoy The Lightbox at their own leisure are able to book a self-guided tour at a cost of £20 for up to 30 children (a maximum of 60 children are able to visit at any one time).

Self-guided sessions are charged at £20 exclusive of VAT, for up to 30 students and include entrance to the exhibitions and a bespoke worksheet for your students to use on the day. Up to 4 adults plus any additional 1:1 support are included in the price, and extra adults will be charged at our Day Pass rate of £7.50 per adult (unless they are Lightbox Members). 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.
