Spent a fascinating afternoon at the body worlds exhibition. Amazing stuff. Then rounded off with a lovely cuppa and a cake in the Times Square cafe, served by 3 lovely smiley chatty girls. A grand day out.

Enjoyed the Bodyworks exhibition, it was fascinating but a little macabre. The 4d ride was good fun, but heed the warnings, it does throw you around a lot. Rest of the place was a little tired, but a god way to wile away a few hours on a rainy day.

Visited the Life Centre yesterday with my sister and niece and it was a great day out to say the least! We visited the body worlds vital exhibition and it was definitely unnerving, however it was also really fascinating and really interested my niece, the life centres other activities and exhibitions were great too, especially the show about Einstein in...

I came here years ago and thought it was rubbish so never came back until today. We spent hours here. There isn't much to it, but one or two things captured my 9 year olds attention and he had a great time. It was half term and was rammed, they need to think how they can ensure that everyone gets...

We went to see Bodyworlds at the centre of life yesterday and I was fascinated. I thought it might be a bit gory but it was anything but. Old and young were stood transfixed as they viewed these amazing figures. Body parts inside and out are on display as well as skeletons, muscles, veins and everything else. Nothing is left... More

Recommended. We saw the plastic people, bodyworlds exhibit over half term which was good and not as gruesome as I thought it might be. The 4D ride was fun if a bit scary for my 9 and 6 year old but it was nearly halloween. Everything worked (see Magna for somewhere a bit broken) and lots of buttony pushy, clickey,... More

Friday last our Premier Cricket League paid a third visit here and must admit that the meal, we all had steak, was excellent. Well cooked and served from the soup, to the main course and the sweet. Service was fast and efficient all presented with a smile. Drinks are reasonably priced for a function and venue of this type and... More

We came back here to see the Body Worlds Vital exhibition and it was incredible. Don't be put off by the fact these are real bodies, there is nothing macabre or goulish about this exhibition. Indeed, you will come away with a lot more respect for your own body and hopefully a desire to take care of it more than... More

I travelled up from Norwich to see the Body Worlds exhibition and it was my first visit to the Life Science Centre. I was amazed that entry was £12.50 for adults and under £10 for a student - so many exhibitions are overpriced and more than £15 per person. Not only did the ticket include entry to the Body Worlds... More
