SCHEDULING YOUR VISIT

Opening Dates, Times and Restrictions

Many Island venues and attractions, especially those outdoors, have limitations on opening times during the year. Additionally, some have limits on the number of group tours on any given date for safety and capacity reasons.

This section helps you identify whether Isle of Wight Reptilarium has any such restrictions during your preferred visit dates.

Help OFF

This is a 'filler' activity with a typical visit taking an hour or two, however there's lots more attractions available on the same site.

A nature walk and fossil-rich beach are available free of charge within the park as well as other paid-for attractions such as a model railway, underwater museum, planetarium and the fort itself.

All year, limited days in winter

All of the supporting documentation you'll need

One of the most common issues faced by teachers when planning trips is ensuring that all of the relevant paperwork is in place, and that the lead teacher and their assistants are fully briefed about each venue before they arrive.

Our experienced teachers have done most of this work for you. In this section you'll find a sample Risk Assessment covering all of the typical activities undertaken at Isle of Wight Reptilarium by groups of students, along with a detailed "On The Day" Procedure which sets out everything you need to know about the site before you get there.

If there are any other mandatory considerations, such as HSE advice sheets for animal attractions or outdoor activity centres, you'll also find these below.
