You can also travel to Lingfield via the Southern Rail East Grinstead service out of London Victoria or Clapham Junction (platform 13).

Our customers include Sir Patrick Moore who after seventy years of custom with our company recently provided us with the following kind endorsement,
"I can continue to recommend Telescope House as the premier UK supplier of Telescopes"
Specialising in Telescopes since 1785. The founders of the business that Telescope House is now part, Broadhurst Clarkson and Fuller Ltd., set up as optical instrument makers in the mid 18th century, not long after astronomical telescopes first became available.
Benjamin Martin established an instrument-making business in 1750. His son Joshua joined him in 1778 and in 1782 he patented a method for producing brass drawn tube. The firm prospered and Alexander Clarkson took it over in 1873.
Mr Broadhurst joined the firm as a partner in 1892, and he moved it to 63 Farringdon Road, EC1 in 1908 naming the building Telescope House but trading as "Broadhurst Clarkson & Co."
In 1973 Dudley Fuller, already a very successful telescope maker with a worldwide reputation with his Fullerscopes instruments, bought the Broadhurst & Clarkson business.
Dudley brought together a hand picked team of dedicated amateur astronomers and re-established the company as one of Europe's leading telescope centres and consolidated the reputation it still enjoys today as Broadhurst Clarkson & Fuller Ltd.
In 2008 the sister website to Telescope House was launched to offer customers a specialist website dedicated to optics for terrestrial use. These include Binoculars and Spotting scopes for nature, sports and leisure. Offering a wide range to suit all budgets there are compact Binoculars ideal for travel all the way to large observation models for tripod use. There is even a section for those interested in Microscopy with a selection of high quality affordable Microscopes. Why not visit Buzz Optics, click Binoculars to be redirected to the website.
