General admission tickets will not give you access to the Grade 1 seating area on Saturday, which is reserved for Grade 1
ticket holders. General admission tickets give you access to all other areas of the site and all the rest of the days' attractions.

Grade 1 tickets are available for Saturday 15 August only, as all seating is unreserved on Friday. As well as giving you full access to The Worlds site and all attractions, a Grade 1 ticket also allows you to choose and reserve a seat in the Grade 1 Arena for the duration of the day. 
Wheelchair spaces can be booked online and by phone. If you have other accessibility requirements please phone to book so we can discuss them with you.
