(May 2022 - Secondary School)




We were unable to do all activities because of some Covid restrictions and refurbishments (April 2022 - Secondary School)




Age appropriate, safe environment, children enjoyed the trip. There was excess waiting time which I felt could have been filled with another activity. (April 2022 - Primary School)

A great experience for the children and met the objectives of the trip (March 2022 - Primary School)




Great workshop and planetarium session. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Perhaps a little beneath KS5 but highly suitable for KS4. (February 2022 - Secondary School)




Very well organised (December 2019 - Secondary School)




The Royal Observatory quite dry - not much hands on for children and a lot of it WAY above their heads. The Planetarium Show however was SUPERB (November 2019 - Primary School)




Learner had a great time - embedded and extended classroom learning (November 2019 - Secondary School)




The static exhibition is now rather dated, with some exhibits not functioning fully. The workshops and Planetarium show are excellent. (November 2019 - Secondary School)

Great day (July 2019 - Primary School)




The staff were very helpful, from the booking process to guiding us and supporting us on the day. We were able to use the lunch space, which we did not think we would be able, plus they were happy for us to adjust the itinerary for the day. They were friendly and made the visit a very pleasurable one. (June 2019 - Primary School)

A fantastic well organised trip. (May 2019 - Secondary School)




(May 2019 - Primary School)




The planetarium was superb, surpassing everyone's expectations. (May 2019 - Secondary School)




The structure and content of the day was suitable for the year group in question. Timings were a little tight, due to traffic on the way to the observatory. In future we may need to leave a little earlier. (April 2019 - Secondary School)




(March 2019 - Primary School)




Engaging and educational sessions led by real astronomers. (December 2018 - Secondary School)




Excellent demonstration by speaker; the individual galleries had a few exhibitions that were not running. (October 2018 - Primary School)




Excellent trip, workshops were fascinating. Catered well for children with SEN. (October 2018 - Primary School)
