Why do I need to pre-book? Can I buy tickets at the attraction?
To ensure you have the best experience possible, we have limited the number of visitors that can visit the Studio Tour at any one time. This means that you will need to book into a timeslot ahead of your visit. As spaces are limited, we strongly suggest you reserve tickets early for your preferred date and time.

Our Visitor Services Team are available daily:
Monday – Friday: 8am-6pm

How many people does a family ticket cover?
A family ticket permits entry for two adults and two children, or one adult and three children.
