The Burrow is OPEN!🍄

Everything You Need To Know!

The Burrow is a playful and interactive space with objects, activities and play areas themed around local nature and our environment (there’s even an adorable Wood Mouse nest with a slide!). There are lots of surprises to discover and characters to make friends with.

Your Eureka! Science + Discovery entry ticket will cover your entry into The Burrow.

Grown-ups must supervise children at all times, and are actively encouraged to play alongside your little ones! Keep scrolling for our Frequently Asked Questions…

The Burrow FAQ's

The Burrow is suitable for the under 7s. All children must be accompanied and supervised by a person aged 15 or over.

Children over 7 with special educational needs are also welcome if accompanied by a carer.

– I have more than one child with me – can my older children come into The Burrow?

Yes, if the older child has a sibling that is the right age for The Burrow, they are welcome to come and play with their sibling. Alternatively, they can stay in the main attraction with another adult, or if they are over 12 they can stay in the main attraction unaccompanied as long as an emergency contact number is provided to the Information Desk.

– Do we need to book The Burrow?

Yes, on arrival to Eureka! Science + Discovery you can book a time to go into The Burrow at the Information Desk. You cannot book this in advance of your visit.

You can head straight to The Burrow, or you can play in the main attraction first – as long as you have prebooked a Eureka! Science + Discovery admission ticket. We can assign timeslots to The Burrow at either admissions desk. If The Burrow is full at the time you arrive, we will book you in for the next available timeslot.
