Do a spot of stargazing at the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre

Macclesfield, Cheshire

Discover the secrets of the universe and the workings of the Lovell Telescope in the gardens and exhibitions of Jodrell Bank.


Ever wondered what the Big Bang sounds like? When it comes to exploring the sights and sounds of the universe, the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre gives would-be astronomers everything they need to find out exactly that. The huge Lovell Telescope is just one feature of the gardens here, but the main draw is definitely the live science events that take place throughout the day.

Not to be missed is the Star Gazing show – where you can learn all about the constellations that make up our solar system, complete with explosive demonstrations that will kindle your interest in the sky above us.
