National Space Centre details...

The award winning National Space Centre in Leicestershire is an out of this world experience for the whole family.  With six interactive galleries, the UK’s largest planetarium, world unique 3D SIM ride and iconic 42m high Rocket Tower, there really is something for everybody to enjoy.

Take advantage of the on-site parking, café, shop and all the facilities you would expect from a world class attraction. An all-weather day out in the heart of the UK, just follow the rocket signs from the M1 and M69.

The Centre hosts many special event weekends including celebrations of Star Wars, LEGO and Daleks. School holiday periods are always exciting, as the Centre adds lots of workshops and talks into the mix, so advanced booking is advised.  Don’t forget that if you book in advance you will beat the queues, be able to upgrade to a free annual Pass and there are no booking fees.

Opening times are Monday to Friday,  10am – 4pm; Saturday & Sunday, 10am – 5pm.
