Your Visit

Arrival

Our visits take place all over our Estate, we will let you know where to where to arrive in prior to your visit.

Schools visiting for river studies will be advised about the specific requirements for these courses.

Transport

Coaches can drop off and pick up in the Box Moor Trust Centre car park but we ask that coaches do not stay in the car park for the day as the Box Moor Trust Centre is frequently used by other organisations and parking is limited.  Coaches may be directed to Bourne End Mills Industrial Estate  (off the A41) where there are areas for parking.

Whilst we do not encourage schools to ask parents to drop off children, we realise that this can be an effective means of transport.  We do, however, ask that we are informed of this beforehand and that this is covered by your Risk Assessments. We cannot take responsibility for any problems prior to the booked session.  Please ensure that the teacher is on site before any parents arrive and, once the children have been dropped off, please ask parents to leave to reduce congestion.
