Cafe closure:

On Tuesday 4th October the World Heritage UK conference will be taking place here at Jodrell Bank, the UK’s 32nd UNESCO World Heritage Site. This means unfortunately, the First Light Pavilion Cafe will be closed to visitors on this day. Our Planet cafe, however, will still be open and available for visitors to enjoy.

We are open Tuesday to Sunday, 10 – 5, with last admission at 3.30, and look forward to welcoming you to science.
