PRIOR TO BOOKING PLEASE NOTE TEMPORARY CHANGES TO EVENTS

One of our observing turrets is currently closed for unforeseen essential maintenance. During clear nights our most powerful telescope will still be in use, and we are using additional telescopes in alternative observing rooms. The content of our events on nights where observing isn’t possible will remain unaffected, other than access to the closed observing turret. Guests unable to climb steps are advised not to make a booking during this time.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update – Latest updates on events and what we’re doing to protect guests and staff.
