The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our number one priority. We have made the difficult decision to fully close the Science Zone UK Centre from Monday 23rd March until further notice. Our team will be making contact with any groups or individuals who are affected by this closure and we will continue to update our website and social media with further announcements if the situation changes. If you have any queries, please email
sciencezoneuk@gmail.com
Or Facebook message on our Facebook site for a chat.

As part of the government's recovery plan, some arts and entertainment venues are to open their doors from 4 July but only if they follow guidance to ensure they are "Covid secure". Some other venues will remain closed by law, including indoor play areas, swimming pools and indoor gyms.

We unfortunately are classed as an indoor activity centre with a lots of touching and fossil digging, in the sensory rooms and dinosaur basement. We therefore cannot open by law until much later and not on 4th July.
