Throughout the summer we have a 'lucky dip' tub of root stock for a donation of just £5 per plant. We can't guarantee the colour, but when you look at our pond you will see just how stunning all of the lilies are.
Thanks to Ken & Andrea for supporting us again this summer.
PLUS: we have a great stock of Verbena Bonariensis seedlings and a host of other plants all at just £1 donation per pot. Help attract butterflies and bees to your garden.. SPREAD THE BUZZ!

Destination Space Project The Observatory Science Centre, Herstmonceux, is proud to announce they have been selected to take part in a project called Destination Space to follow the European Space Agency's British Astronomer, Tim Peake.

Tim’s Destination Space programme is designed to inspire young minds with the wonder of space flight. Backed by the UK Space Agency, 20 Science Centres across the UK, including the Observatory Science Centre, have joined forces with Tim Peake, to provide children all over the UK with this unique opportunity to learn about human space flight and follow life on the International Space Station.

Destination Space will give children across the UK the chance to learn about Tim Peake’s mission and work on the International Space Station through hands-on experiments, live astronaut shows, workshops and live video from the International Space Station.
