  • We have a full programme of Spectacular Science for the 2022 season and we are currently planning for 2023.

    The safety and wellbeing of visitors, employees and volunteers continues to be our absolute priority.

    We want everyone to have a Spectacular visit and we encourage you to pre-book (PayPal required). Pre-booking really helps us to schedule our activities.

    Online booking closes at 11.59 pm on the evening ahead of each visit date. If you miss the deadline, or don't want to book online we can still accommodate you as day visitors; but you are also welcome to call us to be certain ...

    Booking dates are released on a rolling basis...
