It’s written in the stars
Possibly the most unusual wedding and celebrations venue in East Sussex, The Observatory Science Centre is situated in beautiful countryside, offering ample opportunities to reconnect with family and friends, a truly unique experience for couples and groups. You cannot fail to be inspired when you first see the iconic green copper domes appear into view, attune to something from science fiction. In 2022 they officially launched as a licensed wedding venue suitable for groups of all sizes with exceptional opportunities for entertainment. This truly is an incredible setting for couples wanting something unconventional and unforgettable.
With two permanent marquees, couples have a blank canvas to create a reception style as unique as they are. It’s certainly not just about weddings though, The Observatory Science Centre is a great place for all celebrations offering something for all ages, plus lots to see and explore!
Previously the home of the Royal Greenwich Observatory, the Grade II listed venue is now part of Science Projects Ltd and has been operating as an educational visitor attraction with charitable status since 1995.

Bookable activities for all events (including weddings!) include interactive science shows, private planetarium experiences, telescope tours and if the weather is suitable – a chance to gaze through the incredible historic telescopes.
The Observatory’s weddings and celebrations coordinator, Natasha, loves to help clients plan their perfect celebration with as much flexibility as possible. Working with talented local suppliers, they aim to create a bespoke atmosphere which guests will remember for a lifetime.
