Benefits for Groups

Whether you’re an organised club who enjoy a day out or you're getting together to celebrate a special birthday, upcoming wedding or visiting with family and friends, you can all save by visiting as a group of 15 or more!

 

Eat, Drink, Refresh

With lots of food and drink options to choose from including restaurants, coffee shops, a licensed bar and numerous takeaway kiosks, there is something to suit every taste and budget.

To help make things easier for your group visit we can offer:

  • Sheltered picnic area – available for all to use near Realm of the Red Ape. No reservations can be made but all are free of charge to use.
  • Meal vouchers – a gift voucher for food that can be used in any of our three restaurants which comes in useful if the company are paying on your behalf and also saves carrying a lunch float around for the group. Choose from £5 per person upwards and get a pre-paid voucher to redeem on the day.
  • Picnic boxes – Can be pre-ordered before your visit and picked up before lunchtime ready for you to enjoy.
