Before your visit

We advise that all teachers conduct a preliminary visit before arriving with their pupils. If you phone in advance a member of the learning team may be able to meet you and help you with your planning.

Accompanying adults

Please ensure that all accompanying adults on your visit are aware of their role on the visit and are prepared to engage in the learning and support the pupils.

Responsibility for children on site

The group leader is responsible for the behaviour and well-being of their group at all times.

Lunch facilities

Lunch room facilities are available. Please select ‘YES’ you would like to book a lunch room space when booking your chosen workshop/s via our Schools Booking Form.

Lunch Room costs are as follows:

£1 per student (minimum £30 for 30 minutes)

Maximum Group Size

Canterbury Roman Museum has a limited capacity. During busy periods, groups may be asked to split and stagger their visits. The other half of the group may like to visit The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge.

Arrival and departure

Please allow plenty of time in your schedule to arrive at the museum on time ready to start your visit. Allow time for traffic, coach parking and walking through the busy city centre.

Coach drop off and parking

There is no parking outside the museums. Coach drivers can use the marked drop off bays on St George’s lane adjacent to the bus station (5 minute walk) and then proceed to the coach park off Kingsmead road (behind Sainsbury’s).

A disabled car park is available on Orange Street disabled behind The Beaney.

Payment and Cancellations

We will invoice for the number of visitors that was originally booked or however many actually visited on the day (whichever is higher) unless payment is made on the day (by cash, credit card or cheque payable to Canterbury City Council). If a visit is cancelled less than 2 weeks before it is due to take place, we regret we will still request payment to cover incurred costs.
