We also have an observatory, above, near Kenley aerodrome CR8 5EP. There is also a clubhouse for visiting groups, a kitchen for hot drinks and wireless broadband internet. Schedule meetings here are on some Friday nights for members only, and any Saturday night it is clear for the public as well. We notify just below when this is the case. Parking is nearby, off-road in Hayes Lane just a couple of hundred metres to the south at the Royal Air Force Kenley Tribute.
We are now into our summer break so our observatory at Kenley is only likely to be open for specific events (such as the anual Perseid Meteor Shower on the 11th August from 9 pm) until September. Whenever open on a Saturday the public are welcome, just turn up. Details of what can be seen are on the Forthcoming Events section of the Events page.
Location, facilities and notification of all openings are given here.
