Back for another year of wacky experiments, we welcome the Science Zone to our three resorts to bring alive the idea of fun science.

The Science Zone is open during all school holiday breaks throughout 2018, excluding Christmas breaks. Ideal for children aged 8+, our Science Zones are perfect for the whole family to learn about science and get hands-on with some really cool and fun experiments.

At our Science Zone you'll get the chance to learn from and work with our partners the Royal Institution and L’Oréal UK & Ireland, Brainiac and the National Space Centre, also in association with Bletchley Park.
