A popular visitor attraction, set in 1,000 hectares of Swinley Forest. The exhibition is the main attraction with 90 hands-on science and discovery activities in five fun-filled zones – ‘Woodland and Water’, ‘Build It!’, ‘Light and Colour’, ‘Forces and Movement’, and ‘Body and Perception’. Visitors can launch the hydrogen rocket, take a picture of their shadow, build an unfinished house, dam a stream, make a mini animation and much more – including a climb up the 22 metre Look Out tower. Activities aimed at under 12s, but with something for all ages.
The Look Out Discovery Centre offers interactive science shows at weekends throughout the year, and during Bracknell Forest school holidays, so children can learn about science in a fun and interactive way. It is also a brilliant place for children’s birthday parties, especially on a Friday when party groups can have The Look Out to themselves.
There is a great Gift Shop full of pocket money items, as well as snacks and drinks available in the Coffee Shop. Outside is a fantastic adventure play area, making for a lovely family day out whatever the weather. Visitors to the hands-on science and discovery exhibition will get a £2 parking discount if they bring the small part of their ticket stub to reception when purchasing admission tickets. Parking charges are £2 for four hours or £4 for all day. Open daily except 24th to 26th December and for five days in January.
