It’s February Half Term at the Royal Gunpowder Mills and Professor Nitrate is on a Mission to Mars. Join him as he tries to complete his mission into outer space! There are fun science shows with the Professor, space themed activities and fun for all the family. Join us as we make space sand, make your own spaceman suit and try foods that astronauts eat, launch a rocket and even dress up at our space window where you can take a selfie to amaze your friends.

Our 175 acre site is open to explore too, with a fantastic land train tour; exhibitions, theatre and armoury, wildlife tower and ample play space. This is a much-loved all-weather, all-day venue combining fun and learning.
