The Centre has plenty for rain or shine but do check the latest forecast from the Herstmonceux weather station to help you decide whether to bring an umbrella or sun cream!
Please be aware that as with all glass fronted buildings, the main corridor is very hard to heat and we advise all visitors to wear appropriate warm clothing and footwear.
There is no heating in the telescope domes and the temperature can drop rapidly - especially if you are visiting during a stargazing evening.
The outdoor exhibits may not be open in all weathers.
The Centre is located in a beautiful rural location.
It is highly unlikely, but in extreme bad weather it may not be possible for The Centre to open for the safety of visitors, staff and volunteers.
This could be if there was a period of prolonged snow, or 'Amber / Red' weather warnings advising against non-essential travel.
We would use social media for the latest information if we were unable to open.
The staff are priviliged to be on site when The Centre may be closed through all seasons and weather.
We would like to share some weather related images.............
