A Different World - Making a Difference


Day Visits

Please see the bookings calendar under 'School Residentials' to check availability for day visits.  Residentials take up much of the Summer term but we usually have days here and there for day visits.  During Spring, Autumn and Winter months we have much more day visit availability (and sometimes a reduced price!) We can sometimes offer day visits alongside a residential group depending on the type of group we have in residence.


Please note we can only accommodate a maximum of 30 children on day visits and groups of more than 15 will be divided into smaller groups for activities such as animal feeding.


Transport - We do not recommend using full size coaches as access is difficult and lanes are narrow.
