South Central Branch

The South Central Branch is one of 11 regional branches in England, and part of a wider network of IOP activity across our Nations including Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

The branch covers East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey, with activity centres based in Winchester, Southampton, Guildford and Brighton.

Our activities

We organise talks, visits and engagement opportunities for members in the South Central region, and work locally to promote physics, physics education and public understanding of physics.
