Catalyst Science and Discovery Centre

We had a great day out at the Catalyst Discovery Centre in Widnes. We had a nightmare time getting there …. and getting back home was far from smooth sailing too! Journeys aside though – we enjoyed our time there.

There are lots of interactive scientific areas for all ages. The ground floor was our favourite – it had a huge variety of activities. Though all the other levels had lots to offer and learn from too, there was a bit more on the ground floor.  It also has a fun play area outside too.
