Group Visits to our Observatory at Kenley

We arrange visits from and to many groups during the year, including but not limited to: Astronomy evening courses, 6th form colleges, Adult clubs and societies, Scouts, Guides, Cubs and Beavers etc.

At our observatory at Kenley we can normally accommodate groups of up to 20 people, excluding helpers for youth groups.

Visits for groups are normally arranged on Saturdays, Sunday and some Friday evenings (when we are not holding lecture meetings at the Royal Russell School). These visits normally start at 7:30 pm or 8 pm and last about an hour.

If you have a small group it may be possible to organise a visit on other evenings.

If you are interested in a visit to your place or our observatory please contact our Visit Co-ordinator or the Secretary using the email on the Contact Us page.

Site Etiquette and Safety

The path to the observatory and the surrounding area are not paved; it is recommended that visitors wear stout waterproof footwear.

As you would expect the area around the observatory is not lit so you may find a small torch useful. A red light (rear bicycle) is preferred as it does not affect night vision. For white light torches please do not shine towards the buildings or any people outside who may be observing. Dark adapted eyes see the night sky considerably better.
