Lime Tree Observatory

The Lime Tree Observatory on Hutts Lane in Grewelthorpe first opened its doors in 2016 and is available for both public and private bookings. Typical sessions include a presentation, refreshments and if the weather permits,astronomical observing through the observatory’s range of large telescopes, including the huge 610mm diameter “JW24” telescope.
See our website for details of how to book on public sessions, or how to make a private booking.
In our first few years we have welcomed the Scouting movement, U3A groups, photographic societies and WI’s.
Everyone is welcome and the private evenings are tailored to your requirements.
Please note that entry is by booking only. We regret that you are unable to just turn up on spec.
