Tour the University's Meteorological Observatory

We’ve been making weather observations at Reading since 1901. Today we have over 100 years of unbroken daily records including temperature and rainfall. Most of our instruments are fully automatic, and information is logged by computer every second of every day. The wide range of observatory instruments and their records provide a valuable teaching resource to the department as well as continuing our long climate record.

Admission Free. Booking essential.
