Having been in Eastbourne over the weekend, we took the short trip to the Observatory today really on a whim. But I am very glad we did. Three of us (a difficult to please 13 year old plus parents) all thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are very warm and friendly. Luke in particular was really helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable as he gave talks in the observatories themselves then made himself available for questions around the centre. Loads to do- lots of interactive games, not just 'space' related but also science and a brilliant electronics section where you can spend a good hour or so getting various shocks and sparks! I really enjoyed that! A great activity centre for kids, super water-themed games for all ages- I really don't understand why a couple of people said this is only for young kids. You don't need to be a space-fanatic to enjoy this centre. Oh and take a look at the fish in the pond- very impressive!
