Please note that the Spaceguard Centre will be closed on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 October for essential maintenance.

How To Find Us:

The Spaceguard Centre is located at the former Powys Observatory that overlooks the town of Knighton in mid-Wales. The Centre is easily accessible from the main A4113 that passes through Knighton.  It is signed from the main road just east of the town. There is a regular train service to Knighton, but it is a long walk from the station!  A taxi is a better solution.

Opening Hours:

The Spaceguard Centre is open Wednesday to Sunday each week and on Bank Holidays. Tours start at 10:30 (1 May to 31 October only), 14:00 and 16:00 each day. The tour lasts for about an hour and a half, depending on how many questions are raised!

Day or evening group tours can be booked for any time during the year. Daytime tours last for about an hour and a half, while evening tours can last longer if the sky is clear.
