Group Visits

We welcome group visits, so please contact us to find out what we can offer!

Advance booking is essential for all groups over the size of 10 to ensure you have enough space to explore the galleries. To avoid disappointment we recommend booking as far ahead as you can.

We can offer meeting room facilities and well as refreshments and lunch options.

Parking for minibuses can be reserved in advance in our car park. Parking for coaches can be arranged on the University campus, but must be booked in advance.

To make a booking enquiry, please email merlevents@reading.ac.uk.
