Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station Experience Description / Reviews / Visitors Feedback
Reviews
With over 60 dishes on site, Goonhilly is the largest satellite earth station in the world. Able to transmit to every corner of the globe via space, and through undersea fibre optic cables, Goonhilly simultaneously handles millions of international phone calls, emails, and TV broadcasts.

Junior Comment Goon Hilly is really big and wonderful. Its main satellite dish is called Arthur. Arthur used to carry radio signals around the world. There’s a nice tour around Goon Hilly on a bus. You can use lots of computers and there are telephone games. The café is quite good.
