The Essex Dungeon Terms & Conditions

The Essex Dungeon operates a ‘Leave as Found’ basis and requires all guests to show respect to other users by leaving the premises clean and tidy.
We regret that the return of your security deposit may be forfeit or a deduction made if these conditions are not adhered to.   

Terms and conditions are necessary to protect both our interests. We are sorry that this is a bit dry and wordy, but it is very important. 

The most important thing for us is that you have a safe, relaxing and enjoyable stay at The Essex Dungeon, and we welcome you to book your stay with us, but conditionally paying the security deposit for your booking, you must agree with and accept the following terms and conditions.

If there is anything in these Terms and Conditions which you do not accept or do not agree with, then you must not make a booking. Upon making a booking, it will be deemed that you agree with and accept our Terms & Conditions.

  1. The Essex Dungeon’s advertised prices for the facility are based on 2 adults visiting. The price as agreed when making your booking is accepted and guaranteed. If you wish to have other guests visiting, we must be notified in advance as there will be an extra supplementary cost, as advertised per adult. Full day bookings are the exception to this, maximum of 10 adults are to be in the studio at any one time. We do not need to know who the additional adults are.
    • You will pay a deposit to secure your booking and will provide payment on receipt of an invoice issued before your booking begins. You may lose your booking if you fail to pay for an upcoming booking. Your security deposit will be returned with 48 hours of your check out time. Some card issuers take 3-7 days to process refunds. You must ensure you have paid for the full balance of your booking prior to your arrival. Any extensions agreed to your original booking must also be paid in advance.
