Dark Sky Discovery Sites

Where is your best local place to see the stars? It could be closer than you think… It will be somewhere a little away from direct streetlighting, with good sightlines that aren’t blocked by buildings or trees. Dark Sky Discovery Sites are a nationwide network of places that provide great views and which are accessible to everyone. They have been nominated by local groups and organisations as their top local spot to see the stars.

News

We are delighted to announce that 17 additional Dark Sky Discovery sites are in place this autumn. The UK now boasts more than 150 of these stargazing sites.
