Author's Review

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!
