Explore the Universe with us

At Norwich Astronomical Society we aim to promote and advance public knowledge in the Science of Astronomy as well as provide access to the Societies facilities for members who wish to practice Astronomy. We are passionate about astronomy and love to share it with others safely. We will be doing this through events (see the Events calendar) some of which will be open to the public later in the year, others for members only, either online or at the observatory (depending on circumstances and conditions). We also actively support outreach activities when possible and safe to do so.


Joining our Society has many benefits including access to the site facilities and equipment. Members can be trained to use our broad range of telescopes. Members also have access to the Societies online Cygnus magazine, discussion groups including notification when the site is open for observing. Find out more and apply:

Group Visits

We are accepting bookings for the 2024/25 season for Group Visits.

We charge £3.50/head with a minimum Group Visit fee of £50.

We include a talk and view through telescopes (weather permitting) in a Group Visit.

We have a seating capacity of 45 per talk. For larger Groups we would split the group and perform 2 talks/tours

NOTE: We cannot be responsible for the weather on the date of your visit but will make every effort to ensure you have a good time

We are also accepting requests for school visits, this season.
