Sackville School, Hildenborough, Kent, TN11 9HN
The Sackville Observatory on Sackville School in East Grinstead is open once per month from autumn through to spring. These events offer students, families, and the wider community the opportunity to look through their fantastic 200mm reflecting telescope.
The observatory will only be open if weather permits. Please check their Facebook page on the day of the event to see if observing will take place or if a “cloudy night” plan indoors will be offered instead.
