On the day

  • Security: The College requests that all bags, coats and personal belongings should be kept with the individual at all times. If this will present a problem for any individual, please ask to speak to the Visits Manager. Please also see Security Information for visitors.
  • Photography is allowed for personal use only. Please advise your group that photography is prohibited in the College Chapel and the Museum of Eton Life.
  • Groups sizes may be restricted. A minimum of 14 people are generally required for a pre-booked tour. For very large groups, special arrangements will need to be agreed with the Visits Manager.
  • Supervision for school parties is requested at all times and is the responsibility of the adults in the party; the organiser should ensure that all visitors are aware of what is expected of them. Children should be advised that running and shouting are not allowed either indoors or outdoors; this is for their own safety, for the convenience of other visitors and of those living and working in and around the College. A standard tour lasts an hour. Etonians should not be approached, shouted at or photographed.
  • There are toilets, including facilities for the disabled, in Brewhouse Yard.
  • First Aid — please contact any member of the staff at Eton if you require assistance.
  • There is a public telephone near the main entrance, a few minutes’ walk down Keate’s Lane. Please contact a member of staff if there is an emergency. 

Accessibility/Disabled visitors 

For Special Needs groups, please contact the Visits Office to discuss your particular requirements. Arrangements can be made for wheelchair users. The main entrance to the College and School Yard are paved with cobbles, so care needs to be taken if using a stick. College Chapel is up a flight of stairs, but has a disabled chair lift available on request. Most of the Museum is accessible to people in wheelchairs.
