Arriving at the Burton

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.

Car Parking/ Coaches

A car park is 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 Burton 

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, and larger groups can be split up to do different activities in different parts of the building.

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.
