Life is delighted to be the venue for an NHS large vaccination centre, but the operation of the centre, including appointments and queueing, is solely the responsibility of the NHS. Sorry, but Life will not respond to any queries relating to the NHS vaccination programme.

The NHS has issued the following information: Only people who are invited to have a vaccine can book an appointment. For more information go to this NHS website.

Parking is available in nearby Times Square Car Park. Limited spaces are available on site on a first-come, first-served basis – sorry, but we are unable to reserve spaces. 

 

Due to Government restrictions, Life Science Centre, Life Meetings and Events and Times Square Café are currently closed. For any queries, please email info@life.org.uk. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay safe.

Life Science Centre will not be running its outdoor ice rink this year due to ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Read the full statement >

Event details

Discover what Earth looks from space in this family-friendly planetarium show.


We know that sending satellites into space allows us to explore the cosmos and increase our understanding of the Universe. But did you know that there are some satellites that look down on Earth?

Such satellites give unprecedented detail of the surface of our planet; information from the sensors allow us to see changes over time, including the impact that humans have on our world, and even let us monitor groups of animals in remote locations.

All images credited to NASA.

Please note that during term time before 2.00pm the planetarium can be busy with school visits. To avoid disappointment, please call us on the day of your visit.

The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop and has spaces for wheelchairs.

During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
