Lime Tree Observatory

The Lime Tree Observatory first opened its doors in 2016 and is available for both public and private bookings.
Typical sessions last around two hours and consist of refreshments, an astronomical presentation either in the observatory or in our newly built immersive planetarium, followed by astronomical observing through the observatory’s range of telescopes if the weather is favourable.
See our website for details of how to book on public sessions, or how to make a private booking.

Please note that entry is by prior booking only. We regret that you are unable to just turn up on spec.
