The Observatory Building and Grounds

Access to the building's lower floor, which houses the lecture room and one accessible toilet, is via a concrete ramp with a handrail.

There may be a very short period of queuing, so if you find standing difficult please make us aware and we will provide a seat.

The grounds around the building are a mixture of grass and gravel and uneven in places. The telescope viewing platform is level and constructed from concrete with rubber flooring.

We provide a low step ladder to enable our younger guests to view through the scopes and can make adjustments to the telescopes to aid our visitors who prefer to remain in their wheelchair.
