Public Open Days

To discover more about the weather forecasting and climate research, come on a guided tour of our modern headquarters in Exeter, which includes a visit to the National Meteorological Library.

The talks and tour should last about 2 hours and 30 minutes, after which you will be free to look around yourself or use our café. As part of the visit we may ask you about your thoughts on some of the services we provide to the public, this is totally voluntary but may help us to shape our services in the future.

Tickets will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis with a maximum of four tickets per person. In order to meet our security requirements, tickets will be named; therefore we must be notified of any name changes that you wish to make no later than 72 hours prior to your arrival. Those without a ticket or a ticket not in their name will be refused entry. Some form of ID will be required.

Although children will be able to attend we have decided to have a lower age limit of 10 in order to meet our Health and Safety requirements.

Please be aware that we do not allow filming, recording or photography within the Met Office building at any time.
