Tour the night sky with one of our experienced amateur astronomers! We will identify planets, nearby stars, red giants, multiple star systems, open star clusters, globular star clusters, constellations, nebulas, Milky Way, and even other galaxies. You will look through our 12” Meade Schmidt Cassegrain telescope and be taken on a sky-gazing tour.

Go to our website, under the "Open Nights" tab for access conditions and bookings form (essential). It’s best to book ahead so we can ensure availability.

Please check on the viewing conditions before travelling to Oxford and follow us on Facebook @oxfordobservatory for the Open Night’s latest weather update.
