We are very fortunate to have beautiful gardens and grounds within the Science Centre so you can enjoy the outdoors as well. You will have enormous fun exploring the large-scale interactive exhibits in our Discovery Park and the Water Planet exhibits are a firm favourite with everyone. You will also find other exhibits in and around the gardens including our newest addition all about bees nestled within its own flower bed.
Please note that the Discovery Park may be closed for health and safety reasons in poor weather or if the ground is water logged. The Water Planet area is not available during the colder months of the winter season.
Our usual parking field is temporarily closed following unprecedented winter rainfall
Please use the hardstanding car park on Wartling Road: just south of the estate entrance
Blue Badge parking bays available as usual behind the main building
