Q. How far is the observatory. Can I get a taxi there?

in FAQs

A: We are a short drive from the observatory. Local map can be found at the bottom of this webpage: Local Map at bottom of page. It takes approximately five minutes to get to the lower car park where the gate may be down restricting access to the observatory. Do not worry, this is always opened by a member of staff in a timely manner. It will take approximately 10- 15 minutes to drive to the upper car park which is right next to the observatory. There is no local taxi to take you to the observatory unless you pre-book and discuss rates. [Nearest taxi firm, if available, is 19 miles away]
