We can accommodate a maximum of 90 children per day. Depending on the number you bring, the group will be split into 2 or 3 smaller groups. Each of these smaller groups will be led by a member of our Education Team for the day.

Schools should bring a minimum of 1 adult for every 10 children. We will advise specific numbers of adults when you book. We rely on the willingness of class teachers and helpers to ensure your visit is safe and enjoyable. School staff are responsible for student behaviour, ensuring social distancing and first aid provision throughout the visit.




Full day (10am-2pm)

£8 per child

Half day (10am-12pm or 12pm-2pm)

£5 per child

The visit is free for teachers and helpers. Please pay on the day by cash, cheque (payable to BVT) or credit or debit card. Invoices can be raised by prior arrangement. Booked groups that do not turn up will be invoiced for the full amount.


If you cancel your visit within 10 working days of your booked visit we will charge an administration fee of £75. 

Lunch Arrangements + Gift Shop

Please bring a packed lunch which can be eaten in our medieval hall or the lovely Tudor garden. We do have a gift shop on site and pre-prepared gift bags can also be purchased in advance. 


We have plenty of toilets on site but if you bring a large number of children we will stagger the times classes use the facilities. Visiting school children must be accompanied by a member of staff from the school when using the facilities.


A typical day to Selly Manor Museum runs from 10am – 2pm, although we are able to offer flexibility on times that suit your group. If school groups wish to stay at the museum after 2pm we are happy for you to carry out teacher-led activities, please mention this when booking.

Resource Pack, Risk Assessment & Pre-Visit

A resource pack and risk assessment will be sent out to all booked and confirmed groups. Please be aware that our risk assessment is site specific and may not address all the needs of your particular group. Teachers are welcome to come on a free pre-visit to carry out their own risk assessment and discuss their needs, which can be arranged either during or after normal school hours.

Class Teacher Visit 2023

Selly Manor has been an absolutely fantastic experience for the children. They have all been very immersed into the tour and activities! Children learnt about The Great Fire of London last term but there was still slot of little facts that we learnt and the children loved. I would definitely recommend for other schools and for Year 2s every year to visit! A special shout-out to Daniel - he is fantastic with the children and they all respond so well to him. He definitely knows how to talk to children and involved every individual. I have seen some children who are usually very shy get involved and it's all thanks to Daniel.
