Lime Tree Observatory

Lime Tree Observatory

Lime Tree Farm, Grewelthorpe, North Yorkshire, HG4 3DA

Located in the heart of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Lime Tree Observatory benefits from a remote but accessible location under the darkest of skies.

Experienced astronomers run the facility with a fantastic ability to communicate the science of Astronomy to their guests.

As of September 2021, the observatory is not hosting regular open evenings. However, you can arrange private stargazing sessions at a very reasonable rate! Contact the observatory directly for more details.

A visit to this facility is one that everyone would enjoy, no matter their age or experience.
