If, subsequent to booking a place on a cpd25 visit, you find that you are unable to attend, we ask that you let us know this as soon as possible. We invariably have a long waiting list of people for each visit and this means that we can then offer your place to one of them.


N. B. due to the historic nature of the buildings, unfortunately it is not possible to include mobility-impaired visitors in tours of this type. All participants need to be able to manage stairs and a fair amount of walking.
