Bristol’s world-famous Balloon Fiesta began today; with just three days left, we wanted to remind you that we’ve extended our café opening hours to join in with the celebrations!
As you may have heard, we’ve opened our doors as a wedding venue, but the great news is that you don’t need to tie the knot to host your event at the Clifton Observatory!
We are now open for all kinds of events. Whether you are looking to host a corporate or private party, we have plenty of adaptable options to suit your requirements.
If you happened to be enjoying a jog or a stroll across the Downs soon after sunrise yesterday morning, you will have spotted some familiar, but unexpected figures on our doorstep…
With spring in the air and wedding season upon us, we are delighted to reveal that the Clifton Observatory is now a fully licensed wedding venue…open all year round!
Those of you who have visited us before will know…
“A magical story of giants at play, in the city of Bristol they frolic all day. Have a peek and take a look, at the mischief they cause inside out little book…” Have you ever wondered why there is a cave under the Observatory? Or what the Camera Obscura is used for?
In celebration of Aristotle’s 2400th birthday, come and take part in a day of fun with cameras. Come along to the Clifton Observatory on the Downs from 1pm till 4pm on Sunday 1st May (bank holiday weekend) where pinhole photographer Justin Quinnell will be showing you how the world should be seen – upside down!
We’re excited to let you know about our new, very special mural; an artistic representation of beautiful Bristol.
We teamed up with Paula Bowles, children’s book illustrator, earlier on the year to help design our Clifton Observatory Shaun the Sheep as part of the Shaun in the City project.
