Arriving at the BAG&M
On arrival groups should remain in the reception area while the leader reports to staff at reception to announce arrival. A member of the Education or Curatorial staff will then register the group, record numbers and welcome the group to the Burton Art Gallery & Museum.

Car Parking/ Coaches
The Burton Art Gallery and Museum is situated on Kingsley Road, Bideford, adjacent to Victoria Park. Car parking facilities are available opposite the gallery. A short walk away, Riverbank car park offers short and long stay parking as well as parking for coaches.

Cloakrooms and Toilets
Groups are kindly asked to leave large bags on the coach or in the education space due to restricted cloakroom space. Toilets, including disabled facilities are located in the reception area. Please ensure children are suitably supervised at all times.

Whilst At The Gallery and Museum 
During any visit teachers remain responsible at all times for their pupils and must stay with their group. A teacher/student ratio of 1 to 15 is required by the Burton Art Gallery and Museum. If you have a group larger than 15, we would suggest you split them up into more manageable sizes.

Health and Safety
Please remind your group to be aware of and respect other people visiting the gallery by not running or shouting. Eating or drinking is not allowed in the gallery or museum spaces. Cameras are not to be used unless prior authorisation from the manager/curator has been given. Depending on your requirements, you may also be asked to complete a risk assessment form prior to your visit. Again, this will be discussed with you at the time of your booking.

If you have any special requirements please indicate these in the School/Groups Booking Form.
