Discover the darkest skies in England

Here, on a clear night, you can see millions of stars, the Milky Way and even the Andromeda Galaxy (2.5 million light years away) with the naked eye. Every night, there is something different to see, from meteor showers to the Northern lights.

We are lucky to have some of the darkest skies in England in the park. We hope our new dark skies events in the National Park will open up the wonder of our skies to people throughout the region and beyond.
