  • Is the experience suitable for children?

    Although we welcome children, this is an 80 minute fully-guided tour and some of the footage from the show throughout the experience is taken from dramatic storylines in Emmerdale’s history. You therefore may want to consider whether the tour is suitable for your children. Regrettably, pushchairs must be left at reception to allow us to accommodate everybody on the tour. If you would like to bring your children to the experience, please find our prices here.

  • Is there anywhere I can leave my bags?

    We’re sorry but there isn’t any secure space for guests to leave luggage or additional bags. We would recommend leaving these at your hotel or if you are travelling by public transport there are left luggage facilities at Leeds Train Station.

  • Can I take photos in the attraction?

    Yes, we encourage you to take photos throughout the tour and our tour guides do try to take time to take photo’s of you in iconic spots. There is also a souvenir photo opportunity in the Woolpack and so in this area we ask that guests do not take photo’s of the bar area when people are having their photos opportunity so that camera flashes do not interfere with guests shot. Souvenir photo’s are available in the gift shop priced at £7.50 each or 2 for £10. If you are posting on social media, please join us in using the hashtag, #discoveremmerdale!
