Take a stroll through our spooky woodland with your little witches and wizards this half-term as we celebrate Halloween with a pumpkin trail. Grab a pumpkin map and see how many you can find along the wooded paths. For the brave souls that make it back a treat awaits… And we’re not just talking about our uncanny activities: creative sorcerers can conjure the science of colour with chromatography-bats or try their hand at some spooky levitation and design a flying fright!

The Science Oxford Centre provides an amazing and unique science-themed experience for young people and their families. Our new venue encourages them to play and explore – to design their own experiments and make their own discoveries. Our exciting Exploration Zone has a wide range of hands-on exhibits for children to enjoy. Try out the scarf-shooter, build a giant magnetic marble run, see bugs close-up under our easy-to-use microscopes, watch water freeze before your eyes and see what’s hot and what’s not with our thermal camera.

Outside in the 15-acre woodland, you can follow the trails, enjoy the beautiful ponds and hunt for the clues that identify what wildlife lives in the woods.

Join us for a truly memorable visit and see the world differently.

Picnic tables are available for packed lunches. The café will be open for refreshments.

Ticket includes 2 hours in the Exploration Zone and access to woodland.

Please note: Due to the nights becoming darker earlier over the autumn/winter months, last access to the woodland is at 4pm. If you are attending the 3-5pm session, we advise that you arrive early (for example 2.30pm) to visit the woodland before you head into the Exploration Zone.
