The Astrocampus is open to the public once a fortnight throughout the winter months (October-March) and monthly throughout the summer (April-September). Our visits are designed to be suitable for all ages, with the earlier session timed for those with younger children. At each event, you will have a tour of our observatories and an introduction to the night sky. When possible, you’ll have the opportunity to observe the Moon, planets, and stars with our telescopes and binoculars. If the weather lets us down, our team will equip you with some handy hints and tips for finding your way around the night sky, so the events go ahead whatever the weather.
“We took our Beavers group last year (6 – 8 year olds) and they definitely enjoyed it.”
