    Great for the kids, good parking nearby - aim for the one in front of the St. David's hotel - more room per space than the multistorey. Lots of places nearby to take kids for a meal.

    Really fun day out even if you're not a child anymore! Fun family day out. Best to avoid the weekends and bank holidays.

    Havannah Street car park is cheaper than Mermaid Quay car park.

    Leave your coats in a locker in the cloakroom near the toilets (20p)

    Hours spent with the water exhibits. If you have little ones a change of clothes is good. Or wave them under the hand driers like we did.

    Buy the annual membership and visit as many times as you like, including the Science Theatre and Planetarium shows - Brilliant value for money.

    Techniquest was built around this crane, now used as a pendulum. Really easy to move....
