The National Space Centre, Leicester

Click to see ‘The National Space Centre, Leicester’ in a variety of different sizesThis rather odd — perhaps brave — building is the National Space Centre: Leicester’s first and only tourist attraction (although the British space programme, Starchaser, is based on an industrial estate in Hyde, Greater Manchester).

Sadly it is quite a let down. The Space Centre is dominated by stuff for kids, which would be okay if it looked like something interesting rather than a cheap, but text heavy playground. More importantly, there is no narrative to pull it together and so it’s all a bit messy and hard to know how you’re expected to approach what little there is to see.
