No, neither can I.  But how many of us enjoy watching students answering questions like these on University Challenge every Monday evening?

We conduct visits for groups up to a maximum of 15 people and a minimum of 12.

These visits are available on Tuesday evenings only.

The visits start at 7 pm and last for approximately two and a half hours. There is a small charge for the visit; this money goes into a public account that funds welfare opportunities across the Station.

We currently have a huge demand for visitors and our programme is fully booked well in to 2020.

You have been added to our waiting list.

Please consider the following restrictions placed on visitors:

1.The SSPAR may cause issues for visitors who use hearing aids; any such person should
be advised to seek advice from the manufacturer/supplier.

2.Proximity to the SSPAR will cause issues for anyone fitted with a pacemaker and as such
unfortunately we cannot accept anyone who uses one for health and safety reasons.

3.The SSPAR is a multi-storey building with approximately double the amount of stairs
between floors that you would find in the average domestic dwelling. In the event of emergency
evacuation these are the only routes out. Therefore visitors with mobility problems will not be able
to join the visit for health and safety reasons.

4.Your group details will be required approximately 8 weeks before any visit and cannot be
changed at a later date.

5.For security purposes we do not permit mobile phones, cameras, laptop computers,
