Opening times (and closure dates)

During term-time we’re open from Tuesday to Sunday and closed on Mondays.
In the school holidays our opening hours are 10am – 5pm every day!

We base our term dates on Local Educational Authorities across the region, however please note that we are not able to guarantee to be open on all inset days as they are determined by individual schools, and that free schools and academies are not required to adhere to LEA term dates.
