A fantastic venue that's like no other
The Science Centre is an amazing venue. It's perfect for private parties, corporate hire, conferences, awards events – you name it! Hire the UK's largest standalone planetarium, two exhibition floors or the nature-inspired Bio:Space zone. There's even a café, welcome zone and small spaces to hire too.
Talk to us about adding science demos, shows and food and drinks for a great party package. Hire your space on weekdays in term time until 10am or from 2pm onwards. If you need a venue for other times or would like to take a look around, get in touch.
We're just three miles from central Winchester, near the M3 with plenty of parking.
The Planetarium is the most incredible auditorium. You'll have a 360° fulldome screen, reclined seating and presentation stage just for you and your guests. It's the perfect place for events like conferences, prize-giving ceremonies and lectures. You can even add on a live Planetarium show as a special treat for your guests.
You'll find Bio:Space in the corner of the upper level. It has two walls with enormous windows that makes it feel light and bright. This is where the Science Centre's indoor/outdoor nature zone is. You can get to the South Downs National Park from here easily too and the café is just next door.
Want something completely different for your event? Why not hire the exhibition floor and let everyone experience awesome STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) fun. There's a 10-metre guitar, acoustic rocket and lots of exhibits to see, hear and touch. Your guests can even blast off from the Explorer:Space zone.
