Attraction Information

Do you or your family get a kick out of solving puzzles, or are you fascinated by learning how things work? If so then you’ll love The Look Out Discovery Centre.

This hands-on science exhibition and nature exhibition has over 90 activities suitable for children of all ages, spread over five zones. Launch a rocket or set off a hot air balloon in the Forces and Movement Zone. Learn the mysteries of the human body and brain in the Body and Perception Zone by testing speed and reflex; play with laser beams in the Light and Colour Zone, step outside to discover local wildlife in the Woodland and Water Zone and, finally, join the Look Out construction crew in the Build it! Zone.

Outdoors there’s an adventure play area, forest walks and nature trails that span 1,000 hectares of woodland that are perfect to explore by bike or foot. The infant play trail is ideal for ages 3-6 with its massive fort in the middle! All walks are fully signposted with full distances and highlights so you can pick the right one for you.

A day of discovery, learning, play and nature!
