See the stars, wherever you are!
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.
We are delighted to announce a number of new Dark Sky Discovery Sites - UK now boasts more than 100 spectacular stargazing sites. These exciting new additions can be found across the country and are an excellent boost to the current amazing range of sites.
Our network is growing, but we're always looking for more, so if there is somewhere near you, consider nominating it.
