Astrocampus - University of York
Heslington West Campus, York, YO10 5DD
Join the team from the University of York for a free tour of their Astrocampus… Explore the observatories and discover the wonders of the night sky – whatever the weather! With clear skies you’ll get to enjoy the use of their telescopes — if the weather is poor you’ll instead learn how telescopes work and find out more about our Universe.
These events go ahead whatever the weather, so please ensure that you wrap up warm for those not so pleasant nights! The events are designed to be suitable for all ages.
Prior booking for this event is required.
