Coronavirus (COVID-19): Dippy on Tour update

In light of the current situation, along with our colleagues at Link4Life, we’ve made the difficult decision to suspend Dippy in Rochdale. The health and safety of our residents and visitors must come first and now is the time to take a pause.

However, we've put together a virtual tour of both Dippy in Number One Riverside and the Dippy Exhibition at Touchstones Rochdale as well as some activities for you to do at home.

Meet Dippy at Number One Riverside to start your epic dinosaur adventure here in Rochdale. Here you can marvel at Dippy, the superstar dinosaur which has been seen by millions of people in the Natural History Museum in London.

Then head to Touchstones Rochdale to delve deeper into the natural world with a dino-tastic family friendly exhibition. This roarsome exhibition will include a prehistoric swampland, depicting the Rochdale of millions of years ago, and a biodiversity gallery. You can also learn about sustainability and how we can safeguard our amazing natural world for future generations.

We estimate you'll spend up to 1 hour at each venue, which includes your walk from Number One Riverside to Touchstones Rochdale. Opening times may vary, check website for details.Visit our Dippy on Tour site
