The Solar System for Beginners

16th September: This 4 week course will introduce you to the Solar System including the planets and their moons and how and why the Sun is so important to us. Suitable for those with little or no knowledge of the subject.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Visitor Information

It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of The Observatory Science Centre from 18th March 2020 until further notice.

This decision was made in the light of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and recent UK government advice, which our charity has been carefully monitoring and following.

The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our absolute priority during this difficult time.

Given the uncertainty we are all facing, we don’t yet know when we will re-open. If you have booked group visits / upcoming events etc. we will be in contact when we return to work. 

We sincerely wish good health for you and your families during these uncertain times and we can’t wait to welcome you back as we continue our 25th anniversary celebrations.
