As a group of 4 mummy's and 5 kids we had a fabulous day in W5. The kids had a blast exploring the hands on activities and we mummy's had a great day as our kids were occupied, learning and having fun. It took us almost 5 hours to get the kids out again, and every minute was spent discovering... More

We spent a great afternoon in W5 with our kids recently. Fantastic place full of amazing things to do and see. Felt that the Silent Science Show was poor and the experience themselves could be explained in a less wordy way for kids. However kids definitely enjoyed their day.

Needs a much needed makeover. Its outdated. Was there for Halloween and to be fair it was marketed really well but it was rubbish. Fooled again by the marketing . The silent science show. Rubbish movies. Kids bored to tears literally. Should be rebranded W6 M Waste of money

I came here on a school tour first and I absolutely loved it!!! There was so much to do and everything worked brilliantly! Great for kids and adults! I can't really describe how much I loved it! In fact, I loved it so much that I told my family and we went there on a day out. They loved it... More

Took the kids here for the day as my 7 year old loves a visit to w5, they had a silent science show on which both kids really enjoyed. Although we had a great day I feel the admittance fee is a bit expensive and some if the displays don't work.

Always enjoy w5, very good facilities. Love how you can bring your own packed lunch and gift shop is very affordable which is a relief when you go anywhere with children. Only wish it was better supervised by staff as some children hog exhibits or push in front especially in smaller kids area which can be disappointing :(

I was a little reluctant to return to W5 because, despite loving it as a kid, I'm much older now and didn't know if it would still appeal to me. I'm glad to say it was just as fun as I remembered. I was surprised at how quickly the time flew in - it was near closing time when we... More
