Wirral Heritage Open Day – By Kids for Kids tour

Bidston Observatory was built in 1866. The domes used to house telescopes, which astronomers used to look at the stars, to be able to tell time. Find out what the links are between stars and early measurements of time, on this tour. We'll be going all the way from the domes to the sub basement.

The small team running what is now Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre will be assisting this 'by kids, for kids' tour. The duration of tour is approximately 40 minutes. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Booking is essential.

Please note: this is a guided tour. Accessing the whole building includes some uneven floors and many stairs. Unfortunately there is limited disabled access; however for people who use chairs, or have limited mobility, the ground floor is accessible. All bodies are welcome to join.
