Christmas Shopping Spectacular!

With less than 3 weeks to go until the big day, we know that shopping panic is bound to be setting in – but RELAX, we’ve got you covered!  Beat the crowds on the High Street this year and get your loved ones something totally unique instead from our Natural Selection Gift Shop!  If you’re bored of the usual run-of-the-mill toiletry sets, novelty socks or chocolates, then why not pay us a visit, and check out our amazing array of unusual gift ideas. 

We have something for everyone this Christmas – so many weird and wonderful, quirky and colourful gifts to choose from, that you're sure to find something amazing for even the trickiest family member!  We use local suppliers and source many of our products from small businesses, so all our ranges are just that little bit different.  Fill your stockings with everything from space food and NASA gear, to sparkly silver–plated jewellery and gorgeous gemstones; quirky coffee cups, brilliant books and cuddly sloths - we even have Dinosaur Monopoly!

And on Saturday 8th December we are offering an AMAZING discount to all of our customers at our Christmas Shopping Spectacular!  You can get a whopping 15% off everything in our fabulous shop (and if you are Explorer Pass holders it’s even better, as you’ll receive a massive 20% off with your membership card!)  Remember, you don’t need to visit the attraction to go shopping - just head down the stairs by the Ticket Desk to have a browse. We are open from 10:00 to 17:30, and our fun & friendly shop staff will be on hand to help with any questions (or inspiration you might need!).  You can get all your Christmas presents and stocking fillers in one place - and then reward yourself afterwards with a freshly made Gingerbread Latte or Black Forest Mocha in our Food Chain Café. After all, shopping is hard work!

We can also arrange Gift Vouchers for our Natural Selection shop if you are really stuck!!  And if you are looking to give an “experience” this year, then why not give the gift of ADVENTURE!  Organize a fun day out for all the family here at Dynamic Earth, by purchasing day tickets or Annual Explorer Passes online!  We can arrange to personalize these for you too – just get in touch with Jasmine ( and provide your details & requirements for either Gift Vouchers or Experiences.

Whether you’re into science and space, gadgets or gizmos, you are sure to find that “out-of-this-world” Christmas gift here at Dynamic Earth.  Happy holidays!

Checked your opening hours on line at the beginning of the week & discovered that Mon & Tues are Closed days. Fair enough. Decided I would visit on Wednesday lunchtime. Checked opening times again this morning (Wed) online. Discovered Dynamic Earth would be open from 1030 onwards. Arrived on site at 1220 to discover the building closed with no indication as to why & no-one to ask. Checked online on my phone & discovered opening hours now amended to show site closed everyday except Sun23rd. Surely you knew before 1030 this morning! Couldn't you have updated the online info sooner. And why is there no sign on the door. Very poor show.
