Southend Planetarium

Southend's Planetarium is the only planetarium facility in the south-east, outside of London. It presents a range of talks about astonomy and the night sky, and all our talks are given live so there's plenty of opportunity to ask any questions! Pease call to check times, prices and availability before you travel.

Please note that most shows are suitable for those aged 7 and over. Under 5's are not admitted to the Planetarium.

We recommend contacting us to confirm seat availability and current programme.
