Planning a trip to Camera Obscura and World of Illusions over the festive period? We are open every day except Christmas Day and we have extended our opening hours between Christmas and New Year so there’s plenty of time to fit in a visit this holiday season!
There are a few variations to our opening hours though, so do double check them below to make sure you don’t arrive to a closed door.
Standard winter opening hours are 10am – 6pm every day.
Wednesday 24th December: 10am – 5pm
Thursday 25th December: Closed
Friday 26th December: 11am – 6pm
Saturday 27th – Wednesday 31st December: 10am – 8pm
Thursday 1st January: 11am – 8pm
Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th January: 10am – 8pm
Monday 5th January onwards: 10am – 6pm
Please allow two hours for your visit. The actual Camera Obscura show – a 15 minute presentation in the Camera Obscura chamber – is light dependent and the last show is, therefore, at 3pm at this time of year. But don’t worry, if you arrive after the last show has sold out we can either give you an ‘exhibitions only’ ticket at a discounted price (we have 5 floors of exhibitions!), or we can give you a ‘readmit ticket’ so you can explore all the exhibitions then come back to see the show the following day. Also, if you come late in the day or simply run out of time, we can give you a free re-admission ticket to come back the next day. Lastly, your ticket is valid all day, so you can come and go as you please, all day, till late: just ask for a hand stamp as you leave.
