The Hub - Café & Science Shop

Visit the Hub for a bite to eat and find quirky scientific gifts in the Science Shop to take home.

The Hub - Brand new café now open!

Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium has invested in a brand new café which opened in October 2016, bringing the catering offer in-house.

The Hub serves up a variety of hot and cold options, including sandwiches, paninis, cakes and snacks. Hot and cold drinks are available, and thirsty visitors can also treat themselves to a delicious thick milkshake available in eight flavours.

If you would prefer to bring your own food, the Science Centre provides tables for picnicking both indoors and outside. Please do not use the cafe area for picnicking as these tables are required for café customers.

A variety of unusual and quirky gifts can be bought in the Science Shop, from pocket-money mementos to quality books and interesting experiments to try at home.

The Hub can be visited without buying any ticket and is open during normal day time opening hours and most evening events (see individual event pages for details).
