How much does it cost for a school visit?

  • self-led Village Trail designed specifically for schools to explore Great Missenden and its connections with Roald Dahl.

Book your visit


Goody bags

A memento of your visit is often an important part of a school trip. We can therefore provide goody bags for the children (and adults) in your class.

To receive your goody bags on the day of your visit, please book them at least 7 days in advance of your visit. Goody bags are not included in the cost of a school session and must be paid for on the day of your visit by card, cash or cheque. Cheques for goody bags must be made payable to The Roald Dahl Centre (Trading) Ltd.

Goody bags cost £3 each and typically contain:

  • a small Roald Dahl notebook
  • a Museum pencil
  • a Museum postcard
  • a Museum bookmark
  • a Museum wristband
  • a Museum free entry voucher
