Observatory open evenings

Family at BayfordburyOur observatory at Bayfordbury is the hub of our astronomy outreach programme. The observatory plays host to weekly evening visits from small groups, clubs and school parties.

We also organise several major public Open evenings at the Observatory each year where visitors can:

  • see the telescopes in action
  • visit our planetarium
  • attend talks
  • meet our staff and students

Come and discover the observatory for yourself and book your place at one of the observatory open nights.

I’ll be starting a PhD with the university, which is a natural progression, as I wish to enter into research as a career.
