Are you interested in the night sky? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to look at the stars, planets and the moon through some of the country's largest telescopes? Well here is your opportunity! Come and join us on our open evenings and take a glimpse of what it would have been like to use these amazing instruments.

Regular Open Evenings which are open to everyone
No Booking required
Normal admission prices apply.
Normal admission price applies on all Open Evenings except during the Astronomy Festival and for our Special Offer Open Evening at the beginning of the season.
While the Centre makes every effort to accomodate wheel chair users and others with mobility issues, by virtue of the nature of the building (grade II* listed), the telescopes are accessed by steep narrow stairs.
If you require further information please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please also note that the telescope domes are not suitable for prams/push chairs as there is limited space available. Open Evenings are not recommended for very young children.
This won't take long...
