Planning a visit

Planning a visit

We appreciate how busy teachers are, so the Life team is here to make your visit stress-free. Whether your group contains 10 or 500, we will organise the visit from start to finish.

"I visited here with 60 year three children a couple of weeks ago. I can't recommend this place enough. It was perfect! As soon as we arrived we were given a detailed timetable and secure place to put our packed lunches. A member of staff was also available to take us to every activity."

Stress-free planning

You’ll receive your risk assessment in advance and a specially-tailored timetable on arrival. Our in-house catering team can provide lunch or you can use our café space to eat your own. We also provide crates to store coats, bags and lunches.

Life’s location is hard to beat – we’re a couple of minutes’ walk from Newcastle Central Station and Metro. We can also provide free parking on-site for coaches, available on a first come, first served basis.

Please note:

- To maximise learning in our workshops, we prefer to teach students in their normal classes. Mixing students up into unfamiliar groups can make learning more difficult. If you wish to combine groups, please speak to our education department in advance.

- For health and safety reasons, we have a limit of 36 students in all labs (which falls to 24 in many of the higher level workshops).

Home educated groups

We offer home educated groups the same discounts as schools groups. The minimum number for any workshop is 12 children. As our workshops are curriculum linked and age appropriate, we cannot make concessions for a difference in age and ability of the children in your party. To discuss your requirements, please contact the bookings team on (0191) 243 8223.
