Community Group Visits

We welcome evening visits from community groups to the Institute of Astronomy during the winter season.

We are now taking bookings for  October - March 2016

  • If you are a small group (fewer than 20 people in total) you could always book in free of charge for one of our Wednesday public open evenings. Only one such group can be booked in each week - please contact Dr Sonali Shukla to find out more or to arrange this.
  • Larger groups wishing to visit should request a booking for a private visit using the form below for visits.
  • Please note that we will only be viewing the skies through the telescopes on site if the weather allows. If it is cloudy, we can offer a talk and information about the skies instead. Unfortunately, we cannot rebook your group for another day if the weather is cloudy.
