Group Visits

Pre-booked groups enjoy a 20% discount for term-time visits. Additional savings are available for adult groups visiting on weekday afternoons. Planetarium hire & shows can also be added (see schedule here*). Groups enjoy free entry for coach drivers, and are welcomed on arrival to the Science Centre.

To access these special rates and benefits, groups must have at least 15 people, visit during term-time, and be arranged by an organisation. Large families and groups visiting during holiday periods should use the online Family Saver discount to access the best possible price.

Venue hire including catering and other options is also available, for events ranging from weddings to parties to conferences.
