Terms of Access when visiting
Wellington in person.

All visitors to Wellington do so at their own risk. Wellington takes all visits seriously and has procedures and protocols to help keep you safe, with trained staff on duty at all times during your visit.
Insofar as is permitted by law, we make no representation, warranty, or guarantee that your booking will meet your requirements or expectations but aim to exercise reasonable skill and care in the provision of access to our ship and the displays on board. If, as a result of our failure to exercise reasonable care and skill, you suffer any loss or damage and you are a consumer, you may be entitled to certain legal remedies. For more details concerning your rights and remedies as a consumer, please contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
