Designed by Casson Mann, the First Light Pavilion at Jodrell Bank appears in the Guardian's 10 new UK attractions for day trips and short breaks.
"A 76 metre-diameter, grass-topped pavilion is opening at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre this summer. The £21.5m subterranean First Light Pavilion is inspired by the Lovell Telescope and is designed to act like a giant sundial. Inside, interactive elements allow visitors to experience a meteor shower, drive a steerable radio telescope and launch a digital Sputnik. A Space Dome will show films about the universe and displays will tell the history of the site – the earliest radio astronomy observatory still in existence – and there will be guided tours."
The First Light Pavilion opens on 4th June 2022.
