I visited with my 2 year old and a friend with her 2 year old and we had a great time. Theres plenty for 2 year old to do, but think older children will love it too. Very educational, but fun at the same time. I paid £4.65 (parent/toddler fee) which isnt too bad... but if you going as a... More

This is a great place to take children of most ages from about 2 upwards. The Discovery Centre is fascinating with loads of hands on experiments and displays to both teach and fascinate young minds (and some older ones too!!). It can get a little busy so one should try to keep your children moving along so that others can... More

We have visited a few times in recent months. So much so we have bought a pass. Fantastic value for money and brilliant for the little ones. Loads to do....perfect for a wet day as the majority is inside. The toddler days are amazing! Would highly recommend. Outside play park is brilliant and there is a cafe although it's very... More

Children of all ages will love the variety of activities on offer. You can launch rockets, play a tune with laser beams, or test your reaction speeds. Prices are reasonable, with under 4 year olds free, and price reductions after 4pm. There are also many miles of cycling and walking trails nearby so the place is great for an active... More

I've been coming here for 15 years with our oldest son and youngest daughter and it's a timeless and reliable go-to place when you want your kids to have fun and learn something!! All too often they get told to "put that down" or "don't touch that" and by the end of the day we lose the will to live... More

Look out Bracknell was recommended to us by a school teacher and it was a brilliant educational day out. Parking: you park on pay and display area. £2 for 4hrs and £4 for whole day. If you buy tickets for Discovery Centre on the same day, by producing the pay and display ticket's second part you get £2 discount. There... More

This was our first visit and we went on an inset day after the Easter half term, so although it was busy, it wasn't too bad. The parking is reasonable at £4 for all day, but you do get some of that back on the entrance fee it seems. Entry was reasonable and we paid for a show and it... More

The lookout is great a place for families, there are lots of fun stuff to do such as cycling routes,building dens out of sticks and the discovery centre is for 11 years and under which is very educational. You can also run a cross country. The bad points are the amount the of car park spaces, the food is expensive... More
