Private Bookings

The Lime Tree Observatory is open for private bookings.  

In our first few seasons we have welcomed:

  • Beaver, Cub and Scouts Packs

  • Rainbow, Brownie and Guide Packs

  • WI Groups

  • U3A Groups

  • Engineering Groups

  • MeetUp Groups

  • Photographic Societies

  • Family events (Birthdays, Anniversaries etc)

Maximum occupancy for indoor lectures is 25 people. 

From October 2022 we are on track to offer advance bookings for our new planetarium experience alongside the observatory. Please contact us for details and pricing.


We can accommodate slightly larger groups such as cub packs by doing outside activities and splitting the group up.

Please read our FAQ page if you have any questions on refunds / weather etc.

If you would like to arrange a visit for your group, please get in touch via Facebook or email us here
