Hampstead Little Observatory

If you like science and astronomy you may want to visit Hampstead Observatory. It’s a very small one on the top of a small hill (Hampstead is the highest point in London). They have a six-inch Cooke refracting telescope, originally built in 1899, which has been modified with a modern equatorial mounting featuring a remote controlled guiding system.
