Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre
Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is a great day out for all the family. Explore the wonders of the universe, and learn more about the workings of the giant Lovell telescope.
The indoor areas include a model of the solar system, and interactive exhibitions with hands-on activities and a wealth of information about space and communication.
Outdoors there are gardens, woodland, a play area and the Lovell telescope itself. Children can collect a backpack from the reception and complete the planet trail around the grounds to find all the planets of the solar system.
During the school holidays the Discovery Centre runs science shows, experiments and more hands-on activities. Please click here for full details.
The Discovery Centre is open to the public from 10am to 5pm every day, last admission at 4pm. The Centre is occasionally closed for special events or public holidays.
