The National Space Centre is the UK’s only venue dedicated to the romance, history and exploration of Space. Housing a collection of unique artefacts and exhibits, it is an inspiring backdrop to your dreams of a life together, future journeys and your place among the stars.

The Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium provides an awe-inspiring setting for your wedding, taking you and your guests on a voyage to the edge of the universe in a spectacular 360 degree cinematic experience. The Rocket Tower and Space Race offer a glimpse of times past and hopes of fantastic futures, while our six space themed galleries excite and inspire with stunning imagery and hand-on exhibits.

Whether it is a party under the stars or a private and sophisticated affair, we can assist you every step of the way.
