Cheap Street, Bath, Avon, BA1 1LT
Are you fascinated by the night sky? Would you like to spot planets and stars from the top of one of Bath’s historic buildings? Join us for live stargazing at the top of Bath Abbey’s tower with Bath Astronomers.
This space-ial evening gives you the chance to:
• Travel through history as you ascend 212 steps* up the Abbey’s medieval towers for a view across the city. Peer into the deepest, darkest space with the telescopes provided by Bath Astronomers.
• Take a different look at the planet we call home from a Planetarium on the Abbey floor.
• New for this year, you will also be treated to a private, after-hours viewing of Luke Jerram’s exhibition of Gaia.
There are multiple dates and times for this event!
