COVID-19 Visitor Information

We’re thrilled to announce that we will be reopening on Saturday 17 October with a brand new visitor experience – and we can’t wait to welcome you back! However, following 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. We will be continually updating this information as we get closer to our reopening.

We’re closely following government and industry best practices to ensure that we meet COVID-Secure certification when we reopen and our team are working hard behind the scenes to get everything ready for October.

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. 

Tickets are now on sale for weekends and school holidays for visits from Saturday 17 October up to and including Sunday 29 November. Save 25% off all general admission tickets and Annual Passes until 30 September and be one of the first to enjoy our brand new visitor experience. Annual Pass holders will be invited to experience an exclusive preview event the week before we officially reopen so if you don’t have them already, now’s the time to buy! Visit our online booking page when you’re ready to snap up your tickets!
