We're thrilled to announce that we'll be reopening our science centre on Saturday 10 July. Find out more about our reopening plans and subscribe to our mailing list for updates on when you can pre-book tickets.
We continue to be the venue for an NHS large vaccination centre. Patients coming to the vaccination centre should use the Life Meetings and Events entrance on Central Parkway, located here. Parking is available in nearby Times Square Car Park.
Please note, the operation of the vaccination centre, including appointments and queueing, is solely the responsibility of the NHS.
Fancy a skate on New Year's Eve?
Start your New Year's celebrations early with a skate on our open air ice rink. It's a great way to blow away those Christmas cobwebs for a fresh new start!
Upgrade to attend our New Year's Eve party
We’ve got the Christmas period all wrapped up with a festive take-over in the science centre and outdoor skating. Upgrade your New Year's Skate ticket to a Super Saver to visit the science centre while you're here and make a day of it.
Start the party early - and wear the kids out - at our New Year's Eve family special in the science centre.
- Open air ice rink.
- Winter skies in the Space Zone.
- Christmas coding and crafts in the magical Making Studios.
- Experiments and demos with a festive twist.
- Bubble disco and fancy dress competition.
Please note: Super Saver tickets are not available to buy online. Tickets can be upgraded to Super Saver tickets when you arrive at Life Science Centre.
- Sessions last for approximately one hour.
- Tickets are valid for the time and date only and are non- transferable or refundable. Late comers will not be admitted.
- Booking/time slot applies to named parties only; if additional friends/family accompanies you on the day, they will have to join the queue. Unfortunately we can’t guarantee there will be space for additional skaters on the day.
- Sometimes we have to close the rink because of bad weather. If this happens, we will do our very best to reschedule your visit to a date of your choice; sorry but no refunds will be given.
- Skates are provided; you are welcome to use your own skates but we can’t offer a discount if you do.
- Children aged 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult on the ice rink.
- As little ones aged 4 and under need more supervision, adults should have no more than TWO children of this age with them on the ice.
- Children aged 12 and under must be supervised by an adult (adults can watch from the viewing platform if they prefer).
- As space on the viewing platform is limited, it is reserved for parents and guardians supervising their children.
- Sorry but if you leave the rink and hand in your skates, you will have to buy another ticket to skate again.
- Management reserves the right to refuse entry.
Appropriate proof of entitlement to any discounted ticket rate claimed (such as NUS card or Annual Pass card) for each person to be admitted under the ticket. You may be asked to pay the full admission price or refused entry in the instance of proof not being available.
