Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre


Jodrell Bank is a fun day out for all the family.

Within the Planet Pavilion you will find our Cafe with outside terrace which offers fantastic views of the Lovell Telescope.

We also have a gift shop and a small exhibition room where you can explore our Universe and learn more about the planets using our model of the Solar System.

How did the Universe begin? What is a black hole? Find all of the answers to the wonders the Universe, listen to the sounds of the Big Bang and explore the invisible Universe using a range of hands on activities in our Space Pavilion!

Test your science knowledge with our fun worksheets or experiment with sound waves using the whispering dishes.
