Group Visits

Why not bring your group of 10-30 people to visit the Royal Observatory Edinburgh. We accept visits from many different types of group, from Ski Clubs and retired engineers, to Brownies and Scouts. Group visits are only available Monday to Friday.

We offer a range of activities for you group and can arrange special programmes for special interest groups on request. Have a look at our What We Do page for a list of our activities.

Please note that unless stated otherwise, groups of less than our 10 person minimum will still be charged the minimum group size price. Some exceptions apply (e.g. additional needs groups).

Stargazer Badge

We are very experienced in helping Brownies and Cubs achieve their Stargazer badge and have a visit designed especially for this.

A visit for this type of group includes:

  • Observing through our telescopes (weather permitting)
  • Constellation information, including stories and how to spot them
  • A visit to the historical 36” telescope
  • Journey through the Solar System
