CORONA VIRUS

At the moment we are, of course, closed to the public.

We will be able to open again once the Welsh Assembly reduces the social distance to one metre.  At that point we can consider opening once again.

When we do open we will probably have to have some restrictions in place:

  • Tours will have to be pre-booked
  • Only six visitors can be on each tour
  • Face coverings will have to be worn in the building
  • Hand sanitiser will be available, but there may be slight delays to tour timings due to the enhanced cleaning regime.

Please drop by again to see what’s what!

We are easily accessible from the main A4113 that passes through Knighton, and signed from the main road just east of the town.

The Centre is about 8 minutes drive up Llanshay Lane. If you are using SatNav or online maps with our postcode, ignore them for the last couple of miles and stay on Llanshay Lane until you see signs for the Spaceguard Centre (about 1.5 miles). To open a local map in a separate window use this link.

There is a regular train service to Knighton, but it is a long walk from the station! A taxi is a better solution.
