Cotswold Discovery Centre

Cotswold Discovery Centre

The Old Prison, Northleach, Gloucestershire, GL54 3JH

Being housed in an Old Prison the Cotswold Discovery Centre near Northleach has to be one of the more unusual stargazing locations in our database! The 18th century building is now a visitor attraction and its location just off the Fosse Way and away from light pollution means the skies get nice and dark on moonless nights. Perfect venue for stargazing events organised by Chipping Norton Amateur Astronomy Group!


Cotswold Discovery Centre is a private location and is only accessible out of normal hours for stargazing by prior arrangement or when public events are scheduled.
