I want to learn more about space(In London)
« on: 03/05/2009 03:06:03 »
Hi, I just touched down in London for a holiday, and I would really love to know where are the best places to go here to learn about space. Maybe an observatory is here somewhere or a space museum..  I tried google but I couldnt find what I wanted.

Thanks

London is now far to light-polluted to be any use for an observatory (at least for visible light).
While you are there you might want to see this too.

Science Museum, in South Kensington http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk. Also there are the Geology, Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums.

Incidentally, there is a space museum in Leicester, about 130 miles up the M1. http://www.spacecentre.co.uk/

If you check out some estate agents you'll find that space in London is amongst the most expensive in the world.
