Come to the Planetarium for a flight of fancy to explore our planetary neighbours. From the searing surface of our Sun, we head past beautiful blue Earth to the grandest volcanoes and most spectacular canyons in the Solar System, then on to some quite remarkable Moons of Jupiter, and finally to the glorious rings of Saturn, and yet more remarkable Moons.

Because we are a charity run by volunteers we are only open for the public shows from 45 minutes before the published show time. Therefore there is no facility to accomodate casual vistors.
The seats in the main auditorium are ex-aircraft seats. Those in the first two rows are set at a slightly reclined angle to provide the best possible view. They can, however, be tipped forwards to enable easier access to the rows behind when entering and leaving. The seats in the back row do not recline. They provide a wide view of the entire dome area, which some of our visitors prefer.
