  • Great science, shame that they have taken no action to lower sound pollution. Its a noisy place where you tire quickly. Some textiles rather than bare concrete would solve this.
  • Amazing, interactive science museum for kids of all ages. Ample parking just outside, free on Sundays. Café with basic hot food, ice cream, cakes and drinks. Fun physics demonstrations (free ticket from reception might be required).
