Centre of the Cell is a science centre built inside the research building of the Blizard Institute of Cell and Molecular Science at Barts & The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. The Centre of the Cell experience lasts an hour and is suitable for everyone over the age of nine.

We suggest you allow ninety minutes for the complete visit to allow time for getting to and from the Pod from the Blizard reception. Your booking time is the time at which you will be met in reception by Centre of the Cell staff, who will take you over to the Centre of the Cell 'Pod'.

Once inside, you will gather around a central 'nucleus' for a powerful audiovisual display, projected around the walls of the pod, which introduces cells - the building blocks of life. The nucleus opens to reveal touch-table games: you can try your hand at virtual experiments, heal extensive burns and have your cells counted. You also get to see real body parts and diagnose cancer using high-power microscopes
