Christmas Shopping at Jodrell Bank

lovellychristmasIt’s that time of year again and we’re already counting down the days till Christmas. There’s plenty still to do here at Jodrell Bank, not least a spot of Christmas shopping!

Our Gift Shop is packed full of goodies for all ages and interests, and everything has been specially commissioned or selected by us to support our mission to inspire young scientists and to evoke scientific curiosity.

You’ll even find clothing, jewellery and homewares -something for everyone.

And don’t forget that along with providing us with another way to support our mission to inspire others, the gift shop at Jodrell Bank is also a key part of the Discovery Centre’s operation. As a non-profit organisation with charitable objectives, we rely on the income that the shop provides and so purchasing our products is a great way for you to further support the work we do here.

You can find a selection of our most popular items available to purchase online here and you can visit the main shop during normal Discovery Centre opening times – daily, 10am -5pm.


We’ve recently launched our new range of Official Jodrell Bank Observatory merchandise. -The iconic Lovell Telescope is depicted in a stunning illustration on a range of quality clothing, gifts and homeware products. There’s a fun range of children’s clothing too, including t-shirts, hoodies and even a baby grow, all emblazoned with the popular ‘I’m Big and I’m Clever’ motif. Hugely popular, these items are already selling fast.

So, come on down to Jodrell Bank, or head on over to our online store and tackle that Christmas shopping list! The last day to place your order online in time for Christmas delivery is Wednesday 21st December.

Happy Shopping!
