Herschel Museum of Astronomy

The Herschel Museum of Astronomy is in the home where William and Caroline Herschel lived, and in which William Herschel discovered the planet Uranus in 1781. It's been fully restored in the style of the period, and its patron is, like Herschel, another musician-astronomer: Brian May of Queen. The building has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.

The museum features a wide variety of astronomical instruments, including telescopes made by Herschel himself, and an exhibition gallery, the Caroline Lucretia Gallery.
