Adults visiting Eureka! without children

We sometimes get adults who want to visit Eureka! alone or as part of a group with other adults.

If you’d like to visit without a child, you must contact us beforehand to discuss the reasons for your visit. This is part of our security and child protection policies. We complete a risk assessment for all lone adults or adult-only groups wishing to visit Eureka! As part of this, you will be asked to provide information about your group and the reasons for your visit.

If you’re planning to visit as a lone adult or as part of an adult-only group, including adults with learning disabilities, please contact us on 01422 330069 or email at least 7 days before your visit. You will not be able to visit Eureka! without prior agreement.


Vouchers, discount codes and Tesco Clubcard vouchers

We accept Tesco Clubcard Days Out vouchers and you can bring your email voucher with you either printed out or on your phone. However they can only be used to get money off a standard day visit and this can’t be converted into an Annual Pass. You can use them to pre-book online and we will verify them when you arrive.

If you’re using a Yorkshire Pass or a discount voucher with a value of more than 10% off you will be issued a day ticket only.
