Reach for the stars!

Did you know that only 2% of England’s population can see the Milky Way with the naked eye – even on the clearest night?

The area around Tarset Tor has England’s clearest skies – making it the ideal spot from which to gaze at the stars. Tarset Tor sits within the Northumberland National Park which is deep in the heart of the International Dark Skies Park. The Northumberland National Park is collaborating with Kielder Water and the Forest Park to become only the second International Dark Skies Park in Europe. The superb facility at Kielder Observatory has already become one of the most popular attractions in the region.

So if you’re fascinated with the origins of the universe and interested in learning more about the stars and planets, a visit to Kielder Observatory is unmissable. Why not join us for a weekend of cosmic discovery?
