Join the IOP's Lancashire and Cumbria branch for a visit to UCLAN's Alston Observatory. The Observatory is a purpose-built teaching facility for the University of Central Lancashire. As well as telescopes, the site has recently added a new 'Discovery Dome' planetarium system, exhibits on 'Telescopes as Time Machines' funded by the Royal Astronomical Society, and an outside experiment 'Measuring the Cosmos'.  

The tour starts at 8:00pm and lasts for an hour and a half. 

The tour is free and is open to Institute of Physics members and non-members. The trip includes free outward and return bus travel from University of Lancaster (departing 6:30pm) or UCLAN (departing 7:15pm). 

Please note that parking is limited at the Observatory and, where at all possible, we ask that you join the free buses rather than driving to the site. 

If you have any questions, please contact lancashireandcumbria@physics.org
