The W5 might be a very great place to visit BUT not currently during the building works at the Odyssey. Supposedly it is well signed from the parking lot to direct visitors to the back of the W5 on..... more »
Amazing place to go, some fun things to do and some interesting exhibits. Family friendly for sure. Worth the visit. It can also be educational and you might learn a few new things from something in W5!
Great place for kids under 10. Bit of a stretch for older kids. Very impressive that they reduced prices because of construction. Staff were lovely and so good with kids. Kept my 8 year old occupied for a good 2 hours. The virtual reality experience in the shop is well worth the money, very good altogether.
