Yorkshire Dales National Park
Just over an hour from our depot, the Yorkshire Dales National Park is part of the International Dark Sky Program. The Dales offer great walking trails in the day, as well as popular villages such as Grassington and Hebden where you can enjoy cute cafes and homely pubs.
Known for hikers favourite Mount Snowdon, Snowdonia is a fantastic place to visit. Whether you take a trail for sunset at the peak with stargazing afterwards, or take in the views with your feet up with a mug of cocoa, you’ll be stunned by the views in the night sky.
Northumberland National Park
The Northumberland coastline is stunning by day – but by night, it takes on a whole new beauty. Listen to the waves crashing as you take in the starry skies. Villages within the national park are lovely for exploring, too. It’s a fantastic location for stargazing in the UK.

A bit further afield is Cornwall, where Bodmin Moor has been awarded Dark Sky Landscape status. Bodmin Moor has been recognised for its efforts to reduce light pollution.
