Welcome to the Royal Observatory Visitor Centre website.

Individuals and groups of up to 10 people can book in for one of our Public Astronomy Evenings, or our new Creative Space workshops as part of the Year of Engineering!

Groups of 10 or more can book a bespoke visit to the Observatory by arrangement. Check our Group Visits page to see what’s involved and browse the activities on offer for groups.

We also take bookings for visits from and to primary and secondary schools, and run training courses for teachers.

NOTICE: We are unable to accept drop in visits from groups or members of the public. Pre-booked visits only.
