Follow in the footsteps of astronauts
For a truly out-of-this-world experience, bring your family to Leicester this summer to visit the award-winning National Space Centre! With its iconic forty-two-metre rocket tower, the largest planetarium in the UK and six interactive galleries, the Space Centre is a mind-blowing day out for all the family.
You’re instantly in good company as you step inside the National Space Centre, as you’re following in the footsteps of many astronauts – including Buzz Aldrin, past of the Apollo 11 crew that landed on the moon. The impressive Rocket Tower towers over surrounding buildings, and you’ll see it when you’re still far away: take a look inside and see the Blue Streak and Thor Able rockets, and even some real Moon Rock!
Become an astronaut yourself at the Into Space gallery, where you can walk through a replica of the Columbus Module from the International Space Centre. See countless historic items, including the launch couch and spacesuit used by Helen Sharman, the first Briton in space; and discover the answer to the most asked question at the National Space Centre – how do you go to the toilet in space?
Whether you’re a family of space-enthusiasts, or simply looking for a brilliant day out, the National Space Centre has plenty to entertain all the family! The Holiday Inn Leicester Wigston is only a 15-minute drive away from this national treasure, so book to stay with us and enjoy this cosmic day out!
