The multimedia guide acts as groups passes to the Christ Church site, and must be worn around their necks at all times for security purposes. The multimedia guide will have been cleaned before collection but wipes will also be available if they wish to clean the devices themselves before use. Headphones are available and will also have followed the same cleaning process. However, we recommend visitors use their own wired headphones (standard jack) with the multimedia guide. Multimedia guides must be returned at the end of the visit.

The guide/group leader is very welcome to accompany the group into the College, but they must not guide and need to be included in the total number of people booked. This includes Blue and Green Badge Guides. The standard ticket price applies to their tickets, free entry has been suspended while we continue to carefully monitor the number of people on site.
