Telescopes that have been donated to us by Viking Optical are positioned on the Lower Close Green in Cathedral Close where members of the public have the opportunity to observe the peregrines and talk to volunteer staff.

We even have small telescopes for the kids!

OUR OBSERVATION WATCH POINT AT NORWICH CATHEDRAL IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2016 SEASON, Thank you for your support.

The observation watch point is free to the public (donations are always welcome though) with telescopes and binoculars available to use.  It usually opens from the third week of March through to the end of June, found in the Lower Close Green within the Cathedral grounds (exact dates are confirmed nearer the time each year).   It opens 7 days a week between 10.00am – 4.00pm (weather permitting).  Please also note that this dependent on volunteer availability to man the watch point.  In the case of severe weather such as strong winds or very heavy rain, the watch point may not open or have to be closed at short notice.
