Q: Is my registration/ticket transferable?
A: Tickets are non refundable and non transferable. This is because as a business and have costs that need to be paid regardless of "no shows". We understand that this can cause upset but we hope you understand.
Q: What is on the menu?
A: On our Dinner, Drink and Tour option, the meal is Victorian fayre of faggots, peas and mash. Should you require a vegetarian option, we will be pleased to offer this; whilst we are also pleased to cater for vegans and those with specific dietary requirements. However it is essential that you should inform us within 7 days of the event if you would like anything other than faggots, peas and mash in order for us to notify the kitchen. We would advise those booking for groups to ensure that they order the correct meal for everyone in their party.
Failure to inform us of any meal alternatives to faggots, peas and mash 7 days prior to your tour will incur a supplement to pay on the night of between £5.00 and £10.00.
