We head into winter in the UK, and a time spent more indoors than outside. But unlike other interests people might have, home microscopy can be done all year round. If you were thinking of spending many fascinating hours of doing something intelligently rewarding, which requires very little running around, then microscopy is the perfect answer.
You can get started by buying a low cost but powerful quality instrument, and be up and running within a week from now. And with the ever-present threat of 'the virus' curtailing our activities, a microscope will totally absorb you.

This is a book set out and aimed at children who now own a microscope but do not know what to do with it or what to look at. Pippa shows your child how to get the best from their microscope and she has a set of online videos to helkp even further.

You can also use the menu bar at the top of most pages or
use our search engine to scan our site.

If you are just starting out to explore the world at a microscopic level, it might be best to purchase a budget microscope first to see how you get on. The ones on the right are suitable.

If you are stepping up from a budget microscope, a USED microscope properly checked, will save you a great deal of money.
