Yes, there are toilets in the Education Centre. An accesible toilet for those with disabilities is also available, equipped with a baby changing unit.

There is currently no gift shop or café at St Osyth Priory so your class should bring packed lunches and snacks with them on the day. We are able to refill water bottles and provide hot drinks for adults. Please bring your own travel cup with you.

Yes, the classroom is a bright modern space equipped with tables and chairs for everyone in your group and audio-visual equipment. Most of the education programmes make use of the classroom at some point during the day although the emphasis is on getting out into the Estate’s historic buildings and beautiful natural environment as much as possible.

Free parking for coaches is available on The Bury, St Osyth, CO16 8NX. Passengers can exit vehicles safely here.

We believe that school trips are happier and safer when everyone has a clear understanding of their role and their responsibilities. Please read the linked document before you visit.
