We are operating a booking system and find that visits can be much more productive if we know you are coming and what you want to do.. Please use this form  to reserve a place and give us at least 3 days notice of your proposed visit. You can also email us at booking@gfhs.org.uk if you have further queries.

If coming to visit from a distance please call us to see if we have the data you need or to book a computer or fiche reader.
