COVID-19 Visitor Information


Following the latest government announcement placing England into a new national lockdown, we have had to temporarily close the Science Centre. We are closely monitoring the situation and, in recognition of the challenges the country is currently facing, we are working towards reopening for the Easter school holidays. Tickets are not currently on sale but please keep an eye on our social media and website for updates. If we receive any advice that suggests we can reopen sooner, we will announce that on these channels as well. In the meantime, please enjoy our Science@Home activities and share your family fun with us on our Facebook and Twitter channels. Thank you.


We’re thrilled to be back open and welcoming guests to our brand new visitor experience! However, following our closure due to the COVID-19 lockdown, you may notice some changes to your visit.  

The following information will explain what we are doing to ensure you continue to experience an inspirational, educational and safe day out. 




Good To Go

We’ve closely followed government and industry best practices to ensure that we meet COVID-Secure certification and have been awarded Visit Britain's Good to Go mark. This means that we are following official COVID-19 guidelines, have a risk assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. 

We’re doing all we can to create a fun and safe environment for you but, we know you’ll agree, everyone has a responsibility for their safety and the safety of others. We would therefore ask that all visitors follow the advice and procedures we have put in place to ensure Winchester Science Centre is safe for both guests and staff now and in the future.


Book in Advance

All visitors, including Annual Pass holders, must pre-book their tickets in advance online. Check out our handy booking guide for more information on how to do this. 

Following the latest lockdown announcement, we are temporarily closed. Tickets will be back on sale very soon for December dates. Please keep an eye on our social media channels for more information.
