Family fun at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre! How did the Universe begin? What is a black hole? Come and find answers to the wonders of the Universe at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre. Visitors can listen to the sounds of the Big Bang and explore the invisible Universe using a range of hands on activities in the exhibition room or take some time to learn more about the giant Lovell Telescope. There are 35 acres of gardens to explore, with a picnic and play area or if you fancy taking on an outdoor adventure, borrow one of our new backpacks and learn about the Solar System as you make your journey along the Planet Path. Backpacks contain a map, instruction sheet and activities to try as you stop at each planet along the way. The cafe offers a full menu which is centred round the British seasons using quality, local ingredients.
I talk a lot throughout this book about unique attractions that we are so lucky to have here in the United Kingdom, Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is most certainly one of them. With so many things going on here throughout the day, you really could spend more than just a few hours here. If you time it right, you mayget to see the awe inspiring Lovell Telescope moving as it searches through the planets, stars and the universe to which we live. I like many, visited here with the school, But I don't ever remember Jodrell Bank being so interesting. With a lot of investment and a new purposely built discovery centre, not forgetting a great café that serves some really delicious food, Jodrell Bank really has it all!
