    Is anyone here close to this place? Please go to this and report back. Its open March 28th thru Nov 1st.


    Techno-trousers, the Telly-scope and the Shopper 13, Wallace is famous for his wacky contraptions! Join him and Gromit as they guide you through the world of inventions to discover how simple ideas can transform into life-changing devices.

    In this fun family experience see some of the greatest objects ever invented, plus some of the first ever patented inventions from the Science Museum's collection.

    What device in your house could you not live without? Let Wallace's expertise inspire you to develop your own idea for the next big thing.

    This is an inspirational and sensory journey of discovery not to be missed!

    What do you mean by "close"?
    50 yards?
    200 miles (me, just I think).
    4 parsecs?

    Drive straight down the motorway - about 2.5 hours.
    And then driving in through London - about 5 hours.
    But I have no car... :p

    About 200-250 miles for me, but I'm sure we've got to have someone closer to the Science Museum than that.

    Not anymore.
    I'm a complete pauper :(

    Hell, if I'd had the bike my timings would have been
    To London - hour and half.
    Through London - hour.

    That is so cool! Mrs. Fraggle is the world's biggest Wallace and Gromit fan! (Although "Curse of the Were-Rabbit" was a little underwhelming, not as good as "The Wrong Trousers.") We gotta find a way to get to England this year!

    I'll be down in London soonish, might swerve by, as it's free to get in, it's rude not to.

    It's worth a visit, but the exhibitions are always extra, quite a lot extra if there's a few of you and you visit more than one.

    I might be in London next month, still working out the logistics. If I have an opportunity, I'll take a dekko.

    Looks interesting
