Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity

The Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity occupies the whole ground floor of the dramatic 8-storey Darwin Centre building.

The centre is for anyone who is fascinated by UK natural history.  We hope it will nurture, inspire and support naturalists of all ages and levels of interest.

Revised opening times over the festive season

The centre will be closed:

24-28 December 2014
30 December 2014 to 2 January 2015
4 January 2015

The centre will be open on 29 December and 3 January. Our normal opening hours will resume from 5 January.

A key role of the centre is to support the wide network of groups, schemes, societies and other partners that work in the field of natural history across the UK. Workshop space, study equipment and other resources are available to help these organisations with their valuable work.
