4.2 We wish to know who attends our tours (for example, for statistical and research purposes).

4.4 Tours may vary from the pictures or descriptions contained on our website. Images of the museum and the tours are for illustrative purposes only.

Further, the duration of your tour may vary depending on the numbers on the tour.
4.5 Make sure you book the correct number of tickets for those in your group. We cannot guarantee spaces on the same tour if you are required to book additional tickets at a later stage.
4.6 If you require any special arrangements (such as disabled access, language requirements or guide dogs) or modifications to be made to your tour, please let us know at the time of booking and we will try to accommodate them.
5 ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS
5.1 We may offer for sale to you some additional products, such as afternoon tea and/or souvenir books. The availability of, and option to purchase, these will be notified to you during the booking process and these products will be made available to you for collection or consumption on the date of your tour.
5.2 Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements and we will try to accommodate them.

6.2 If such change is possible, we will inform you of any changes to the price of the products or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change. We will then ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
6.3 We reserve the right to make changes to our tours to:
a) reflect changes in relevant laws or regulatory requirements; or
b) implement minor adjustments and improvements (such as to the structure, route or duration of your tour) due to ongoing construction, improvement or maintenance work, and/or inclement weather.
6.4 We additionally reserve the right to amend these terms at any time. You are advised to check these terms each time you purchase any of our museum or grounds tours, as any changes will be binding on you. Where any changes have a material impact on your visit, we will use all reasonable endeavours to notify you as soon as reasonably practicable after the change is enforced, in writing.
7.1 The price of the tickets, vouchers and any additional products (VAT inclusive where applicable) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order or as explained to you over the phone.

7.3 For groups of 15 or more, booking can be secured by non-refundable deposit in accordance with our group rates, provided that the balance of the payment is made in full not less than 10 working days prior to the date on which the tour is due to take place. These rates will be notified to you at the time of booking. In accordance with clause 3.1 no contract will be formed between you and us until the balance of your payment for your booking has been made to us in full.
7.4 For groups to which clause 7.3 does not apply, booking can be secured as follows:
a) a non-refundable flat rate deposit of £84.00 or
b) to secure a group booking for the Museum only option a non-refundable deposit of £30.00 is required
7.5 In relation to group bookings, where payment of the balance is not made before 10 working days prior to the date on which the tour is due to take place without notification to us, we reserve the right to release the booking for re-sale and retain any deposit paid.
7.6 We accept payments either in cash or by debit or credit card in £GBP only. We reserve the right to charge a nominal transaction fee for payment by credit cards which will be notified to you prior to payment. This may be in addition to any charges or fees that your bank or credit card supplier may charge.
7.7 For some group bookings only, we may additionally accept payment by BACS transfer following the issue of an invoice by us. Please quote the reference number on the invoice at the time of payment. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will try to resolve the issue. Your reservation will not be affected during the time that any invoice is queried until such time as it reasonably appears that the query will not be resolved (in which case we will notify you).
7.8 Any promotional discounts, vouchers or London Pass numbers must be presented or notified to us at the time of booking as discounts cannot be applied after the time of purchase (whether paid in full or in part by deposit in advance). When attempting to make payment or part-payment by voucher, London Pass or by a promotional discount, we reserve the right to refuse to accept the relevant voucher, pass or discount if you are in breach of any of the terms and conditions of issue contained on the relevant document and require you to arrange payment by another method set out in clause 7.1.

Please note that we do not deliver to non-UK addresses.

8.4 If you require your vouchers to be delivered to you before a certain date, please let us know in advance and we will try to accommodate this. We will not be responsible for supplying the tickets or vouchers late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time.
8.5 If you have asked to collect your vouchers from our premises, you can collect them at any time prior to your tour start time during our working hours of 10:00 – 16:45 Monday to Friday.

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen (for example, if you discussed it with us at the time of booking).
12.2 We will not be liable for any:
a) loss of, or damage to, any personal property which may occur during your tour or on our premises (unless such damage is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill); or

14.5 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
