Find Accommodation near 'Techniquest Glyndwr'


Techniquest Glyndwr is a science and discovery centre based on the campus of Glyndwr University and offers visitors over 60 interactive exhibits and live shows explaining what makes science so amazing.

The exhibits are housed in two ground floor buildings with a short level covered walkway between them. Our researchers found general access around the site good and the staff very helpful and friendly.

As our visit was during term time the university restaurant was not open however the Plas Coch  pub/restaurant is only 5 minutes drive away and a ticket for Techniquest is valid for a whole day and permits re-entry.

The newly refurbished Plas Coch has some indoor and outside accessible tables and our researchers were made to feel welcome. It has a designated toilet with left hand transfer however as this is located behind a swing door, unaccompanied wheelchair users may require assistance.
