Very well organised (December 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 18485 )




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 - Post No: 18093 )




Learner had a great time - embedded and extended classroom learning (November 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 18028 )




The static exhibition is now rather dated, with some exhibits not functioning fully. The workshops and Planetarium show are excellent. (November 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 17840 )

Children enjoyed the visit. Journey there was quite easy. The space galleries were a little dated and some equipment didn't work properly. (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 17337 )

Great day (July 2019 - Primary - Post No: 14062 )




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 - Post No: 13937 )

The planetarium was superb, surpassing everyone's expectations. (May 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 11635 )




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 - Post No: 10962 )

Engaging and educational sessions led by real astronomers. (December 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 8655 )




Excellent demonstration by speaker; the individual galleries had a few exhibitions that were not running. (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6939 )




Excellent trip, workshops were fascinating. Catered well for children with SEN. (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6784 )
