If you do not agree to be bound by these terms and conditions you may not use or access this website.
We reserve the right to modify or withdraw this website without notice to you and we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any such modification or withdrawal. We may also change these terms and conditions from time to time without notice to you and your continued use of the site following such change shall be deemed to be your acceptance of any change.

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products. However, as the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery.
All sizes and measurements are approximate.
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered on to the system. However, the information may not always reflect the exact position at the time that you place your order and we cannot confirm the price of a product until your order is accepted.
Prices are subject to change without notice and inclusive of value added tax (VAT) at the current rates.
Products are subject to availability. As there is a delay between the time when the order is placed and the time when the order is accepted, the stock position relating to particular items may change. If an item you have ordered becomes out of stock before we accept your order, we shall notify you as soon as possible.
Purchase of products
When you place an order on our website we will email you an acknowledgement of your intended order. At the time of despatch of the order the purchase contract will be made and you will be charged.
Acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the despatch to you of the products ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it in accordance with the instructions in cancelling an order.
Any discounts triggered by the entry of a promotional code will not be applied until the order is accepted but will be detailed on the invoice.
We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by you at any time in our sole discretion. However, non-acceptance of an order is most likely to result from one of the following: the product ordered being unavailable from stock; our inability to obtain authorisation of payment; the identification of an error within the product information including price or promotion.
If there are any problems with your order we shall contact you.
All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering information onto the system. VAT is deducted on the products where the delivery address is outside the EU, in accordance with HM Revenue and Customs regulations.

Payment can be made using any of the following cards:
- Visa Debit

We do not accept payment by cheque, cash or postal orders.
Processing is reserved against your card at the time the order is placed, but will not be charged until the order is despatched.

1. The Experience
1.1 Experiences are suitable for adults aged 18 years and over.
