Ages: 4+

Venue type: Indoor

W5 is a literally staggering array of interactive exhibits, a really full day's worth and the kids will be pulling you along the whole way through this compelling experience.

Get elevated on the pulley chairs, explore space, make magnets move or build and race your own K'nex car.

Design and build structures, bring robots to life, make patterns and play virtual sports. Be a weatherman. Become a car mechanic and customise a real Mini in the W5 Garage, make a splash at the water area with ball canons, pop into the music studio and make some noise with the sound exhibits, plot a course with the life-size dinghy, watch your skeleton ride a bike or take time out at the role play TESCO and cafe staffed by you!

They also have an area with exhibits particularly suited for 5s and under. Design a butterfly or flower and explore your senses with the sounds and feel of nature in the woodland area, become an interior designer and decorate your little house just how you want it. Then create your own roads, villages, railways and take a journey round their model landscape.
