Magna Science Adventure Centre

      
Rotherham Yorkshire England
Description : 
Magna

yorks magna33Magna is a fantastic day out for all ages. The Science Adventure Centre is packed with interactive exhibits and fascinating displays to help you explore the wonders of science and the laws of nature.

 

Magna echoes with the rich industrial heritage of the UK steelmaking industry. Set within a colossal former steelworks, which once used the natural resources of earth, fire, water and air - celebrated at Magna today - to manufacture steel products which were shipped around the world.


The 'Steel, Peech and Tozer' works produced 18 million tonnes of steel a year and employed 10,000 people in its heyday. It stood at the heart of the booming Sheffield steel industry.

The steelworks closed in 1993 but the original building has been largely preserved as a monument to its industrial heritage. Impressive artefacts such as hulking hooks, winding passages, cupolas and cranes are still positioned around the science adventure zones in Magna today. They are silent reminders of the cathedral-like building's industrial past.

You can learn more about Magna's industrial heritage through big screen features and multimedia displays at Magna. Guided steel tours telling the human story of the industry are led by former steel workers at regular intervals most days. One of the steelworks' original electric arc furnaces is brought back to life at Magna with the 'Big Melt' show and its awesome recreation of the steel-making process.


Magna Science Adventure Centre is a family attraction with over one hundred hands-onyorks magna2015
exhibits designed to help you explore the four elements - AIR, WATER, EARTH and FIRE.


Learn more about gale force winds, tidal power, electro-magnetism, underground tunnels and
exploding rock faces! Gasp at the fire tornado, squirt an industrial supersoaker and dig with a
real JCB!

Magna's amazing outdoor playground is not just high-tech - its SCI-TEK. Designed for fun and creativity, its unique play structures will get you swinging, balancing, climbing and spinning. Sci-Tek is one of the largest outdoor playgrounds in the UK. And, in warmer weather, there's an extra wet play area called AQUA-TEK. Open from May half-term to September, it adds an extra splash of adventure. Don't forget your towel!

Buy a full day pass to Magna and upgrade to an annual pass for FREE!

It's a "coats-on experience"! Magna is a large, industrial building and it's chilly inside. Wrap up warm when you visit.

 


There are new exhibitions, attractions and workshops all year round at Magna - see www.visitmagna.co.uk for details.

Ripley Castle

         
Harrogate Yorkshire England
Description : 

Inspiring Gardens and a Riot of Colour

Ripley Castle is an historic attraction open to the public all year round and makes for a

fascinating and entertaining day out, in a beautiful location, with memorable surroundings.

Because it has belonged to the same family for twenty six generations, Ripley's colourful and

sometimes gruesome history is well documented. If the Castle walls could talk they would tell

the story of kings and queens, civil war, plagues and numerous clandestine affairs. The guided

tours are very entertaining and informative as there are so many humorous anecdotes about the

castle and the family. You get to see some 16th century books, Royal Greenwich Civil War

armour and the secret priest's hiding hole, only discovered by accident in 1964. The Ingilbys

were prominent Catholics. Francis was martyred in York in 1586 and several others were

implicated in the Gunpowder Plot. 'Trooper Jane,' a redoubtable loyalist, held Oliver Cromwell at

pistol point in the Castle Library. There are also special children's tours which are hugely

popular.

There are delightful walled gardens; impressive hot houses, herbaceous borders and kitchen

gardens with herbs, rare vegetables and fruit trees. Visit the Walled Gardens in April where

there is a collection of Hyacinths giving a riot of colour and a lovely aroma. There is a play trail

for children and a lovely walk around the lake and deer park. Following your tour of the Castle

and Gardens visit the Gift Shop which is full of inspiring presents to suit all ages, and sample

delicious fayre made with local produce in the Tearoom. The cobbled village has several shops;

an Art Gallery, an ancient church and a charming Inn, The Boar's Head,

with bar, brasserie and beer garden.
