Thank you for taking our children and adults back in time to experience a period of history in a way that we could not replicate in the classroom. The use of technology added to the inspiring and exciting theme of the day. Using 21st century technology to explore a time period over a thousand years ago is brilliant!
Grateley School visit - July 2023
878 AD schools programme can start from 10:00am. Your schedule will be sent to you once your booking has been confirmed and we can often work with you to tailor your experience to ensure you have enough time to travel from your School and also get back on your coach in time at the end of the day.
Unfortunately, we do not have lunchroom facilities onsite at either 878 AD or Winchester City Museum but are often able to hire a nearby lunchroom for you should you need it. Though we can’t guarantee a lunch room, please let us know at your time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
As part of your booking, we will arrange your visit to Winchester City Museum for you so just let us know at the point of booking if you would like a dual visit and leave the rest to us!
We are able to offer a ticket to 878 AD and Winchester City Museum (if booking a dual visit) so that you can attend a pre-visit at your convenience. 878 AD is open at the following times:
Term time: Thursday – Saturday, 10:00am – 5:00pm and Sunday 11:00am – 5:00pm. Monday – Wednesday by appointment only for schools and education groups. Please contact email@example.com to arrange.
School holidays: Monday – Saturday, 10:00am – 5:00pm and Sunday, 11:00am – 5:00pm
In the event of late arrival or unexpected early departure, we will always do our best to accommodate as much of your originally planned activities into your day. We reserve the right to adapt your programme accordingly in order to work to any unplanned timings.
Please give a minimum of 21 calendar days’ (excluding Hants school holidays) notice in writing (including email) of a visit cancellation. We regret that with less than 21 days’ notice we will be unable to refund your booking costs.
Should you wish to change the date of your booking, please give a minimum of 21 calendar days’ (excluding Hants school holidays) notice in writing (including email) and we will endeavour to accommodate your request. We regret that with less than 21 days’ notice we will be unable to change the date or to refund your booking costs.
In the unlikely event that 878 AD should need to cancel your visit (e.g. Museum closure due to snow), we will contact you to re-arrange your visit for another mutually convenient time. If it is impossible to reschedule, a full refund of your booking costs will be given.
