The Space Store is an experiential store dedicated to bringing space to everyone, everywhere, every day.

Our first store in Didcot offers a unique high street experience with space experiences such as virtual reality, augmented reality, dress like an astronaut, eat like an astronaut, and specialist talks from experts in their fields.

Our store has a great space themed café serving quality coffee and beverages plus tasty hot and cold food plus live feeds from the International Space Station and space updates

We regularly hold Fascination Space events which is a superb 2-hour space experience involving hands-on activities and educational talks for all the family.
