Techniquest to close until further notice

December 4, 2020

It is with regret that we are required to temporarily close our science centre from 5 December due to the Welsh Government restrictions imposed on all indoor visitor attractions in Wales.

We will remain closed until further notice — unfortunately we cannot set a date until further guidance from the Government has been given.

We share your disappointment that we are being forced to close, especially in light of the comprehensive steps we have taken to ensure a safe environment for everyone. As you may know, we have dramatically reduced capacities and implemented thorough measures which have seen lots of positive written feedback from visitors.

In line with the recent restrictions announced on Saturday 19 December, our shop is now also closed. You can stay up to date with our latest news and information by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

From all of us at Techniquest, thank you again for your support and we hope to welcome you to our centre soon.

  •   Where can I park?

    We are pleased to be able to offer all of our visitors discounted parking with Q-Park, our preferred parking partner.

    The Q-Park operates the Cardiff Bay car park in Pierhead Street which is around 8 minutes walk from Techniquest.

    We have agreed a special discount rate for our customers of 15% off all pre-bookings.
    Pre-book and guarantee your space here using the code TECHNI15.

    There are also nearby pay-and-display car parks on Stuart Street and Havannah Street. Please do not park on Havannah Street itself.

    We regret that there is no parking on-site at Techniquest.

  •   Who is it for?

    Techniquest is suitable for all ages! We do have special events for certain groups, however — see Toddler Days and Home Educator days.
