To reduce the impact price increases might have, we are phasing them in over a number of years using a capping system. The most any prices will increase by in the first year will be 20 percent. In the second year the most any prices will increase by is 50 percent on top of the 2016/17 price and in the third year the most any prices will increase by is 80 percent on top of the 2016/17 price.

Instead of paying per visit, it could be better value for you to take out one of our monthly memberships.
