Group tours

Youth and community groups from Waltham Forest can book a free Waltham Forest Welcome when they visit as a group. The Waltham Forest Welcome is available by appointment subject to staff availability, please contact us at least two weeks in advance. The tour lasts for 30 minutes and includes a personal welcome from the Activities and Events Officer, a brief introduction to the Gallery and facilities as well as information about the Young People’s Programme. Together we look at and discuss an object from the collection to practice our critical thinking skills after which the group is ready to explore the Gallery by themselves. Tours can be tailored to the needs of individual groups.

To book a tour, register your interest in any of these opportunities or for more information please contact Rebecca Jacobs, Cultural Programme Officer rebecca.jacobs@walthamforest.gov.uk 0208 496 1465
