Cancelled – Family Open Day (30 January)

Saturday, 30th January 2021
Session Times:
Suitable for age 6+

Following the government announcement on the national lockdown, we must cancel our Family Open Days in January. We will automatically issue refunds to all bookers, so no action is required. We are sorry for any disappointment and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can.

Visit our Science Oxford Centre this January for a unique science-themed experience for families. Explore, discover and play in the Exploration Zone, where children can get their brain buzzing and have a go at a range of fun hands-on exhibits. Try and beat the Scarf-shooter, build a giant Magnetic Marble Run, see bugs close-up under our easy-to-use Microscopes and see what’s hot and what’s not with our Curious Camera.

Bring your wellies and enjoy some fresh air in our 15-acre woodland, just pick up an activity sheet and follow the trails to spot the wildlife, native trees and shrubs and enjoy busy pond-life from the decking.

Your ticket includes two hours in the Exploration Zone and access to woodland all day.

The health and well-being of our visitors and staff is our highest priority. Following Government recommendations to minimise the risk of person-to-person transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19) here are some steps we are taking to keep you safe:

Please follow government guidelines if travelling between tiers. Due to the latest government advice, those with tier 3 postcodes are no longer able to attend – if you have already booked, we have issued you a refund, please allow 5 working days for this to be processed by your bank.
