  • Visited this week for the first time and really enjoyed it even as a group of adults. The talks were fun and informative, wish I'd taken a couple of kids tho so we could have played on more things! :)  more »
  • I love this place it is so interesting and a fun place to learn at the same time. I have been here three times throughout my childhood first on a school trip then twice with family. Great day out!
  • Great if you are into the history of science, the old telescopes and observatories are fantastic. Go on one of the guided tours. The children loved doing all the interactive 'experiments' and can't wait to go back.
  • Very knowledgeable staff / guides, with plenty to do and learn on both child and adult levels. Didn't use the food facilities, but they looked good. Ample parking, and set in wonderful grounds.
  • Great place for all the family, young or old will enjoy all the hands on fun things and educational too. Very interesting talks and showing the telescopes. Would recommend.
  • A good experience overall. Lots to do outside and inside and will occupy 1-2 hours at least. Parking coukd be improved and annoying to have to queue behind tailback for the castle when access to the science centre could be opened up farther down the access road but that's a minor aside.
