Jodrell Bank is one of those places I knew from Doctor Who when Tom Baker goes through his regeneration and it has always fascinated me. You don’t have to be nerdy to appreciate science but I am nerdy and I do appreciate science as well ! I never really knew where Jodrell Bank was I just knew of it and for some rhyme and reason I thought it was far far away. It’s good for children there any age but they will be more appreciative of it age 7 and above. It’s only 8 pounds for adults to get in and you can go on a talk that lasts about an hour which is free. The talk will be given more than likely by one of the young university students and they know their stuff !
Jodrell Bank is a Grade 1 listed structure and I love it , there’s exbihibtions to see and there are some grounds to walk round and picnic in there’s even a small playground.Work is ongoing to improve the facilities and you can see this when you visit within a few weeks or months.
Jodrell Bank is a fantastic place to learn about space and the enormous Lovell telescope and encourages a love of science regardless of age or ability - from the sheer size of the telescopes to the indoor activities such as planet models and infra red camera.
