What's On

Find out what's on at the Observatory Science Centre for 2019. We're offering a packed programme, with some new things on offer this year!

Astronomy and Space for beginners

£186.00 per Adult

This twelve week course is for those with little or no knowledge of the subject. It will introduce you to our fascinating Universe; how we look at it, what is in it including the possibility of life elsewhere, how the Solar System formed etc. There may even be opportunities to look through one of the large telescopes. The course is taught in one of our domes under the backdrop of a historic telescope.

Open Evenings

Come and enjoy the fabulous atmosphere that surrounds the Observatory at night and, weather permitting look through some of the largest telescopes in the country at some extraordinary night sky objects. Don't worry if it is cloudy we have a cloudy night contingency; a fascinating planetarium style talk! No booking required.
