Visiting the science centre?

You can book your car parking ticket online in advance of your visit. When pre-booking your science centre tickets, simply select car parking as an extra. Pre-purchased parking tickets can only be used on the day of your science centre visit and are valid for a maximum 5 hour stay. If you have pre-paid, when you arrive at Times Square Car Park, please push the button to issue a ticket. When you arrive at Life’s reception, the team will then validate your car park ticket, which will activate the barrier for your exit.
