Jodrell Bank with its famous huge white telescope is one of the best places to take kids for a science-themed day out. The interactive exhibits are very child-friendly with lots of opportunities to turn dials and push buttons. During school holidays there are additional activities including science shows and sessions aimed at the under 7s. Outdoors there are 35 acres of gardens including outdoor exhibits, play area and a trail. The cafe has a great view of the Lovell Telescope.
