Prices & Opening Times

Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is open from 10am to 5pm each day and the last admission is at 4pm.

We are currently improving our visitor facilities and work is under way to extend our car park. Due to this construction, our car park capacity is currently reduced and we have limited the availability of on line admission tickets.

If you cannot make an online booking, please be aware that you can still visit – we recommend that you set off a little later in the day and visit us in the afternoon when we tend to be quieter, or go straight to our overflow car park at Terra Nova (which is signposted en route).
