Event description

Description

A rare treat! Visit to the King's Observatory, The Old Deer Park, Richmond.

We are delighted to offer Kew Society Members a guided tour of the King’s Observatory. This Palladian gem, constructed by Sir William Chambers in time for King George III and his family to view the Transit of Venus across the face of the Sun on 3rd June 1769, is being opened by its current owner during February and March 2019.
Cost for a guided tour : £7.50.
As The Kings Observatory is now a family residence, the visit will be confined to rooms of historical interest.
There is carparking very near to the Observatory. Please also note that there are very steep steps up to the Cupola.
