    •   What is Techniquest?

      Techniquest is an educational charity, with a science centre in Cardiff Bay. Our mission is to embed science in Welsh culture through interactive engagement. We provide a range of services to schools and teachers to complement formal education provision in Wales and work extensively with public audiences.

    •   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.
