Visiting the Radcliffe Observatory

Visits to the Radcliffe Observatory are strictly limited.

The Radcliffe Observatory is generally closed to the public and only Green Templeton College members and their guests are permitted access.

Exceptions have included the annual Oxford Open Doors celebration, a city-wide event where many of Oxford’s most well-known buildings are open to the public. During this time, members of the public are able to visit the upper levels of the Observatory with the assistance of college students and staff. All are invited to explore the interior of the Tower of the Winds at this time.

The Tower of the Winds can be hired for certain private events. For more information contact:
