Overview

There is much more to Jodrell Bank than you might expect. Famous for its Science Centre and Planetarium (the largest outside London), it is a must for any science-hungry children, with plenty to look at and learn about the science of Earth and the other planets. You can hear Albert Einstein talk and even step onto an astronaut's footprint. With 14.2 hectare (35 acre) of stunning nature in the Arboretum, visitors also get a far more rounded education, learning from a collection of over 2000 species of trees and shrubs. There are also nature treks and many more regular special events throughout the year including specialist artist sessions and tree hunts.
