Calling all young explorers

There’s lots of new things to enjoy including new activities for under 7s - please note that the Young Explorers' Zone is now closed. 

Highlights include:

  • See a rainbow indoors and hear some noisy toys with our new Discovery Backpacks. Pick up yours at reception to use throughout your visit. The Listen Discovery Backpacks for under-4s include musical instruments and toys that make interesting noises. The Look Discovery Backpacks for ages 4+ include coloured filters and glasses that enable the wearer to see rainbows indoors. (Limited availability. Refundable deposit required on entry.)
  • Head inside the North's biggest planetarium to watch the show Naughty Monsters in the Sky projected onto a huge overhead dome.
  • Explore pop-up play areas with hands-on activities, such as creating rockets, building with chunky blocks and exploring how balls roll.
