Disabled visitors

All the telescope domes are on one level, as is all of the main observatory building. However one entrance (the west door) has steps. It is in the oldest - and now Grade 1 Listed - part of the building and has not been adapted for disabled access. Nonetheless all the building is accessible from the other entrances.

Please contact us at enquiries@normanlockyer.org if, as an individual visitor or a group leader, you have queries about access and disability in relation to a proposed visit.

Special events are put on twice per year, for visitors who are visually impaired.

Please refer to Touch the Stars for more information.
