  • My daughter had been banging on about visiting here since we booked the hotel, convenient that we were just round the corner. Entrance fee was £17.50 for both of us - a bargain. We loved the 4d polar express ride along with the exhibitions - brain area was the best. The highlight was the planetarium visit to see the stars - absolutely loved it and I don’t really have an interest in stars. Danny the presenter was fantastic and his voice during the whole show was fab, he could read the phone book to me and I’d be happy!! Well worth the money, great time was had by all.
  • Amazing place to visit, with lots to do for the while family. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and very engaging. Far more than you could see in a day or even two and with the "games 2.0"exhibition with gaming through the ages and so many machines to play on and try out it's a geeks heaven. Will be keeping my eyes open for that on tour. Can't recommend the life centre enough, something for all the family Look forward to visiting again
