At the Science Centre we want to make sure everyone can enjoy their visit.

Over 40% of children in the UK have been diagnosed as having some form of allergy. Whether your family is one of these 40% or not, there's lots of things we can all do at the Science Centre to make sure everyone has the best day. By working together we can make sure potential allergens aren't spread around.

  • Wash your hands after touching food
  • Wash your hands when you come in from outside
  • Please eat in the designated cafe areas.
