You can visit the observatory for a stargazing evening, either privately booked for your party of 10-25 people, or on one of our scheduled public evenings. "Private" events are specifically for large parties, be they business outings, societies or educational groups. When we have arranged a schedule and have a working booking system, "public" events will be run on a first-come-first-served basis, where places may be booked by small groups and individuals.
We don't yet have a schedule of public stargazing evenings, but if you would like to register your interest, please contact us.
If you are interested in booking a private stargazing evening, please read our full guide on stargazing evenings here before making your booking enquiry.
Other than at our annual Stars & Snowdrops open weekend, we are unable to accept casual visitors.
