Ready for a nature adventure?

Who loves birds and bugs? Do you want to see what it's like to explore indoors and outdoors when you visit? Yes? Yippee!

There's so much fun and play in the Bio:Space area. It's full of challenges and science activities that are inspired by the South Downs National Park. It's an amazing place to find out about nature and how we can all keep it safe and special for everyone to enjoy.

Don't forget your hat and coat – we'll be going outside whether it's sunny or rainy.

Let's have some hands-on outdoor fun

Bio:Space is the most amazing place ever to go on an outdoor scavenger hunt. You can take on the adventure playground – it's a real challenge. You can even make an instrument that sounds like the minibeasts that will be around us. The best thing is that every visit to Bio:Space is totally different.
