A lovely visit, very welcoming and thoughtful. Refreshments a big plus.
Our year 8 pupils thoroughly enjoyed their Multicultural day and felt that your temple was certainly one of the highlights. They also commented on how interesting it was to observe real Hindus participating in prayer and worship, and felt it our experience of religion more realistic. We particularly liked listening to our guide. The children liked listening to his humorous stories. He clearly had a wealth of knowledge.
We really enjoyed it. The guide was excellent
We received a great welcome
The guide was brilliant. Best visit till date.
Thank you for letting us visit your temple. We really enjoyed looking at all the gods, especially when the priest said a little prayer for us. Eating the Indian food was extremely lucky. My favourite two gods were Ganesha and Hanuman.I was very lucky to come to the temple and also had the time of my life.
Thank you for letting us visit your temple. I enjoyed seeing the priests praying to the gods. The poppadums and the yoghurt rice was scrumptious.

The following notes set out our standards for ensuring that groups visiting receive the level of supervision necessary for their safety and for a valuable learning and hopefully spiritually uplifting experience.
The discipline and the behaviour of the pupils are the responsibility of the teacher, assistants or organisers, not the site wardens.
It is advisable to book a minimum of 6 weeks in advance, as the Temple is very popular for educational visits and we have limited availability during certain times of the year, particularly Easter to end of July and September to early November.
Although we appreciate that this may cause inconvenience to the group concerned, our guides will cancel, curtail or alter agreed activities under any of the following circumstances at their discretion:
If a school or group wishes to cancel a minimum of 24 hours notice is requested.
Schools and groups are responsible for completing their own independent risk assessments and conducting any site visit that may be required prior to the group’s outing.
It is the responsibility of the School/Organiser to ensure that children have suitable, respectful clothing, it is not necessary for girls to have their heir covered.
We are fully accessible, we welcome everyone and we will endeavour to tailor a visit to suit individual requirements.
Parking is free and is near the main Temple Reception.
The Temple does not charge for guided tours or educational visits. Donations are welcome however, and will directly contribute towards the cost of maintaining and conserving the site for everyone to enjoy now and in the future.
