Trip Details

Beginning our day at the historic market town of Knutsford. We spend the afternoon at Jodrell Bank, a UNESCO Word Heritage Site, home of the impressive Grade 1 listed Lovell Telescope. At almost 90m tall this radio telescope stands proud on the Cheshire landscape as a symbol of British science and engineering. Nothing compares to seeing this giant structure up close and during our visit you can join a Telescope Talk with an expert explainer to learn more about its fascinating history and ground-breaking research (included in the price). Also discover the wonder of the planets in the beautiful Orrery (clockwork model of the solar system), find out how the universe began, discover all about black holes, see what the Lovell Telescope is observing right now, plus much more.
Price includes self-guided admission into The Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre and Telescope Talk as above.
