The University Observatory is a unique venue combining astronomical research, teaching and outreach. Managed by the School of Physics and Astronomy, the telescopes range from 6cm to 94cm in size and 1 year to 100 years in age. The observatory is mainly used by students and researchers; however, there are open nights and guided tours for members of the public and amateur astronomers.
