Do I need to book for a party of 6 on July 6th and would that be a return booking? How much does the trip cost?

Response from Ralph L | Reviewed this property |
£7.50 each for the return trip. You shouldn't have to book, though if it's busy you might wait for a while. There are comfortable facilities if you need to wait. Don't overthink it and enjoy your visit.
