    Going Places is an exciting new hands-on family exhibition that offers visitors the opportunity to drive, load, control and design all forms of transport.

    If you have ever wanted to pilot an airship, stack a cargo ship or ride on a hovercraft now is your big chance!

    Going Places has over 16 fun-filled activity stations that explore the technology that humans have developed for travel.

    • Challenge your friends to a cycling race to find out whether a recumbent racer or upright racer is fastest.
    • Climb into the cockpit and experience what it feels like controlling your own aeroplane.
    • Compete in the airships challenge and fly your very own remote control airship.
    • Try your luck at sailing a land yacht, learn the inner workings of a combustion engine and use the carbon calculator to figure out your transport carbon emissions.

    Become the driver in Going Places and discover the fascinating technology we have developed for travel and transport across our lands and ocean - it’s fun for the whole family!
