Family Open Day (28 November) Cancelled
This event has been cancelled in line with new Government restrictions from 5 November to prevent the spread of COVID-19. You can request a refund or you can transfer your ticket/s to one of our Family Open Days in December.
A unique science-themed experience for families. We encourage children to play and explore, design their own experiments and make their own discoveries. Get hands-on in the amazing Exploration Zone and try and beat the super-fast Scarf-shooter, have a blast on the Air Table, or tackle our Turntable challenge and keep the discs spinning. Get up-close to nature and see bugs and plants under our microscopes, then take a breath of fresh air and find out what wildlife lives in the surrounding woodland. Just ask one of our team for a trail sheet to get started! Your ticket includes two hours in the Exploration Zone and access to woodland all day.
