Annual Tickets

All tickets purchased online are now Annual Tickets.

This enables you to return to Jodrell Bank within 12 months.

It also enables us to treat your ticket as a donation, meaning that if you’re a UK taxpayer, we can claim 25p for every £1 at no extra cost to you.

Win, win!

Admission Timeslots

All Annual Ticket holders are also required to book an Admission Timeslot. This confirms the date of your visit and the time of your arrival.

When you book online, you’ll be asked to firstly buy your Annual Tickets, and then to book your Admission Timeslots.

All visitors must have both an Annual Ticket and an Admission Timeslot for everyone in their party.

You can also select optional add-ons…

Dome Shows

You can also choose to add a planetarium-style Dome Show to your visit. Shows are not included in your Annual Ticket and are charged at an extra £6/4.

Age range suitability varies

Car Parking

Car parking is required and charged at £4/day/car
This is not included in your Annual Ticket.

Booking FAQs:

What do I need to do?
It’s strongly advised that you book online. When booking online, you’ll be able to:

  • Buy your Annual Ticket
  • Book your Admission Timeslot(s)
  • Add on an optional Dome Show
  • Pay for car parking

Do I have to book online?
No, but it helps to guarantee your entry time and avoid queues on the day. If you do not book in advance online, you will be able to buy a Day Ticket in person. This won’t give you 12 months access however.

Please note that from the 10th September, we will be accepting payments through card only.

Do I have to buy an Annual Ticket?
No, but it’s the only ticket you can buy when booking in advance online and it offers the best value for money. The Annual Ticket enables you to return to Jodrell Bank within 12 months.

Your annual ticket allows for return visits within 12 months of purchase. You will still need to book your Admission Timeslots (the date and time of your booking), but once you have an Annual Ticket, you’ll be able to do this for free.
Annual Tickets do not include car parking, event tickets, or add-ons such as Dome Shows.

I already have an Annual Ticket, do I still have to book my visit?
Yes, you can just book your timeslot online, using your Annual Ticket number.

I have a gift voucher, how do I turn this into a booking?
