We had a 9th birthday party with 10 boys and it was fantastic. Food was delicious and party organiser was well planned. Boys really enjoyed themselves and great value for money.

Lots of information about the solar system and an exhibit with Dr Who characters including daleks and other movie legends such as terminator and predator. Enjoyed by both the adults and children in our party. Staff friendly and helpful. Free parking.

The children loved everything about it especially the simulator! This was an excellent trip to link with our space topic which gave the children lots... More

Downstairs there is also a space exhibition with lots of interactive activities to do. Upstairs there is an excellent Dr Who exhibition with the most lifelike Tom Baker model I've ever seen! There is also a... More

We visited this when we were staying in Liverpool. Couldn't believe how quiet it was. My two boys aged 7 and 9 had a lot of fun and were interested in all the information on the different planets. Lots of interactive models and a great ride on a space ship simulator. The robot exhibition was great and I was the... More

Visited Spaceport on 23/10/14 to see if it was a good place to take 4 of grandchildren during half term. (Ages 4 to 9) They will be amazed by it. To start you go onto the launch pad, then the door opens and you walk into the solar system area. There are many amazing facts to learn. The film in... More

We went to the Spaceport as part of the Merseyside ferries offer, this was a trip for my sons birthday. He loves all things space, but we left feeling a little bit disappointed. The lower section has plenty of information about the solar system but the upstairs section was very plastic and disappointing. There is also no cafe for food... More

Hi, thank you for your comments about Spaceport, we will feed these back to operational staff. There is a cafe in the Seacombe ferry terminal building, just a couple of minutes walk from Spaceport. Look out for more information about our special October half term offer and free craft days during the half term week! More
