Gift Aid

As we’re a charity, Science Centre tickets include a voluntary 10% donation which allows us to claim an extra 25p in every pound from the Government, providing the donor is a UK tax payer. It’s called a Gift Aid visit and it makes a huge difference to charities like us. To enable us to reclaim your Gift Aid, you must be paying an amount of income or capital gains tax at least equal to or greater than the amount of this donation.

Registered charity number 1059607.

Save with an Annual Pass

If you plan to visit more than twice in a year, it's cheaper to buy an Annual Pass... then you can have unlimited visits for no extra cost! More information on Annual Pass Membership.
