The Hub Café

Taste buds tingling? You'll be spoilt for choice at the Hub Café. Pop in for a mid-morning drink and a snack or a delicious lunch. There are sandwiches, toasted paninis, jacket potatoes and nachos. Fancy something even more yummy? Go for tasty cakes, biscuits or fruit. Sit inside or outside on benches and round tables. Round tables are perfect if you use a wheelchair or lip read.

The Hut Café

Feeling peckish? Make a pit-stop at the Hut Café. It's a little bit further away from the hustle and bustle of the exhibits. You'll find it quieter than the Hub Café. There are lots of quick, tasty snacks and hot and cold drinks to choose from.

All the tables in the Hut Café are round. That means they're great if you use a wheelchair or use lip reading.

The Hut Café is located on the lower floor.

This is the perfect place for a picnic. There are so many beautiful places to relax and eat here. You can get to the main outside picnic spot from the Hub Café. It's on the upper level and has steps or a ramp. You'll find picnic benches and amazing views of the South Downs National Park. Eat your sandwiches in the Planetarium's shadows! Don't worry if it rains or gets chilly when you're having your picnic outside – just pop into the Hut Café. You can enjoy an indoor picnic there.
