See the stars at Hampstead Observatory

to Hampstead Observatory Hampstead Observatory is a small observatory with a six-inch refractor, housed inside a rotating dome, and it has one major advantage over its more famous brother in Greenwich -- it allows the public to just turn up and see the stars for free. You don't even have to book.

That’s all the events for children, but there are plenty more 15 April events in London, including:

Hans-Peter Feldmann exhibition — Serpentine Gallery15 AprilHans-Peter Feldmann made his name in the 1970s with his expansive and encyclopaedic photographic series, which linked his life-long hobby of collecting with his practice as an archivist of visual culture.
