Welcome to the Royal Observatory Visitor Centre website.
We've been unwrapped and our copper domes have been fully repaired.
We are now open for business again, welcoming group and school bookings. Individuals and small groups (less than 10 people) can book for one of our Public Astronomy Evenings, which are currently held weekly over the winter months. Or why not come along to one of our weekly talks on Monday evenings.
We are also still taking bookings for visits to schools.
NOTICE: with the exception of our Winter Talks lecture series we are unable to accept drop in visits from groups or members of the public. Pre-booked visits only.
