We’re open for pre-booked visits 🙂

As the measures are lifted across the UK, we remain committed to the health and well-being of our staff and visitors.

  • All visits must be booked in advance.

Will we still be able to play with everything?

Yes, pretty much. There’s a limited number of smaller areas we’ve kept closed for now, but all the main galleries and interactives are open. We’ve ramped up all our cleaning protocols and are even using a disinfectant “Fogging” system to ensure interactives can be played with. At this time our picnic train carriage remains closed.
