Meeting point
Pleasehead to the main visitor car park where you will be greeted by a member of staff in a high-vis jacket. Please be aware that it will be very dark on drive through the estate.
What to bring and wear
Wear warm, appropriate outdoor clothing and bring a torch. If you have a pair of binoculars pop them in a bag too. We would also recommend a thermos of a nice hot drink!
Accessibility
Wheelchair accessible, but most telescopes cannot be viewed through from a wheelchair.
Other
Please bring the correct money for your ticket which is £5 per person. During the star party please do not use a smart phone or tablet computer, e.g. Ipad, to look at astronomy apps. The light from these devices makes it hard for you and others to see faint objects through the telescopes.
