Life Science Centre is open on weekends only until Saturday 23 October, and then we're back open 7 days. Tickets for timed slots can be purchased online in advance of your visit. Some slots on the afternoon will be kept free for walk-ups - but booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
Our safety measures remain in place. This includes the Life team and visitors being asked to wear a face covering unless exempt.
To make a booking, or for more information, call (0191) 243 8223.
We are delighted to confirm that our much-loved, open-air ice rink will return this winter, from 13 November 2021 – 9 January 2022!
Bring your students to Life this winter for a whirl on our open-air ice rink. Suitable for children of all ages and abilities, recreational ice skating can encourage pupils to explore a variety of winter sports, as well as improve posture and balance. It’s fun and great exercise too!
Life’s Ice Marshals are on hand to provide coaching for tentative skaters and we have special packages available if you would like to combine a skate with a workshop or a visit to Life Science Centre where you can experience our amazing hands-on exhibits.
