Our tours are friendly and fun
You will be offered a drink and a chance to see the helicopter (operations allowing). Visitor Centre Tours, which must be booked in advance, are free of charge. However, you will learn about the many ways in which you can help the charity raise vital funds.
Whilst our public tours are aimed at an adult audience children are welcome with their parents/carers. We can accommodate up to 20 people on our public tours.
Bespoke Tours for groups of 6 or more people can be arranged for a time to suit you. Children’s Tours can be arranged for groups of children with their responsible adults.
