At the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, young and old can explore the wonders of the Solar System, find answers to mind-blowing questions and get up close to the huge Lovell Telescope.

Finally, go and see the giant telescope for yourself. Walk around it, discover how it works, and have a go on the popular Whispering Dishes.
