Meteorites & Fireballs
Inspired by the Greg's interest in space and science, join us for science family fun at Quarry Bank this October half term. As part of Manchester Science Festival.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
With interactive activities and science experiments we will explore meteors, fireballs, friction and much more.
Step into space and learn about astronomy in our interactive inflatable Cosmodome. Run by the physics outreach department from the University of York, this is a chance to meet scientists and see space up close. Book your tickets via the separate event listing on the Quarry Bank website.
In association with Waters corporation

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
Free for all National Trust members
Please note: members can be scanned at the garden and mill entrances, but if you need to buy a ticket for Quarry Bank please go to Visitor Reception. Apprentice House tour tickets are available from Visitor Reception, you can book onto worker's cottage tours at Styal Village Hub.
We advise early arrival as there's lots to see and do. Entry prices will be reduced during mill closure (from 20 November 2017).
