Our Awards

Up there with the stars…


Wow…  the Lovell Telescope is an icon for Cheshire and beyond… and as awards season has taken off, it’s safe to say we’ve been seen from afar winning a number of regional and national awards across the UK.

We are very thankful and appreciative of the acknowledgements we’ve received from other organisations and businesses reminding us that not only is all of the hard work we put in worth it, but that we’re recognised for what we are and what we continue to become; an award winning attraction, a remarkable site of heritage and science, and a progressive organisation launching the next generations in to a future of wonder and discovery. 

Thank you everyone!
