    On the Ground Floor, visitors can meet Robothespian, W5’s life sized, humanoid, interactive robot who can move, speak, educate, interact and entertain!

    Robothespian is primarily a robot actor and performer. He is fully interactive, user friendly, and capable of communicating and entertaining in a way that few people will have experienced before. This static, humanoid robot can be controlled by the visitor, via a touchscreen panel, and can sing, greet, inform, act and even do impressions. Visitors can choose from a wide range of pre-programmed performance sequences or can even control Robothespian’s movement and voice to create performance pieces of their own!

      Complete your visit to W5 with a trip to our brand-new gift shop on the ground floor.

      It’s a great place to pick up some unusual and educational presents. We stock lots of different products including science kits, books, toys and more!

      Discover a wide range of LEGO® products in our exciting new LEGO® Zone and take a photo with one of our life-size LEGO® models, like ‘Yoda’ or ‘Indiana Jones’.

        Exploration is key at Spacebase - the multi-sensory activity zone for 3-11 year olds. Children are encouraged to find out about the universe with state of the art wrist band technology that turns them into space explorers, encouraging them to discover fun facts about our solar system within the activity zone to complete their mission!

        Adults can relax in a dedicated seating area and treat themselves to a hot beverage from our Spacebase coffee dock while watching their children play and have fun.

        Please note, Spacebase is an add on experience only available to W5 visitors and costs an additional £3.50 per child.
