Sundays at the Royal Gunpowder Mills 


10am – 5pm (3pm last entry) 

Come and enjoy a relaxing Sunday at the Royal Gunpowder Mills between 7 May and July 16 - with 20% off the standard admission fee for selected Sundays. 

This offer applies to 9th July, 16th July only.  

Set in 170 acres of extraordinary landscape and unique buildings, this is a fascinating place for all, and at such a price there has never been a better time to explore!

For families, we have the acclaimed Mad Lab show delighting children or all ages, where Professor Nitrate creates chaos setting off bangs, crashes and fizzes.  Mad Lab assistants help children get hands on with rocket making and launching and fun experiments. With ample playspace, crazy contraptions and all the exhibitions, this is an all-day, all weather venue.

For adult visitors, the Royal Gunpowder Mills has over 300 years of history to explore. There is the acclaimed Armoury with a comprehensive collection of firearms from the Civil War onwards, and the Rocket Vault - both with enthusiastic guides at hand, some who worked here when it was a top secret research establishment.

For a nominal fee, take the Land Train tour with experienced guides taking you to hidden parts of the site, a Scheduled Monument and an SSSI, rich in history and diversity of wildlife habitats. Watch out for deer and other wildlife!  And throughout the day the Gunpowder Café serves great food. .

Tickets can be purchased on the day or through our Eventbrite page.

Please note that due to wildlife protection, no animals are allowed onsite, with the exception of certified Assistance Dogs.
