How many arrival slots should I book?

You need to book an arrival slot for each person who has a ticket. This includes existing ticket holders.

Under 5's do not need a slot and are admitted free.

Can I arrive without booking?

We are operating at reduced capacity and have established a system of arrival windows. You may arrive at our sites without booking an arrival window, however you run the risk of being turned away if we have reached our capacity and are fully booked. 

We strongly recommend booking an arrival window.

How do I book if I am already a Friend of Vindolanda, have a ticket, or I am eligible for a free ticket?

If you are already a Friend of Vindolanda or have a  Golden Ticket you still need to book an arrival window. Please select the existing ticket holder option when you book. Please bring your existing ticket/card with you to show our staff when you arrive.

Do I need to print my booking confirmation/tickets?

No, you don't need to print them. If you have them on your mobile device we can scan the QR code from your phone or tablet.
