Northumberland Internation Dark Sky Park



Around 85% of the UK population has never seen a truly dark sky. So for an astronomic experience that won’t cost the universe head to Northumberland for unrivalled stargazing.

The best time for stargazing is during the autumn and winter months, when the nights draw in. You don’t need an expensive telescope. Just pack up a pair of binoculars, a deckchair, take a hot drink and bite to eat and head for rural Northumberland for a star-studded show.

One of Northumberland's favourite tourism attractions Kielder Observatory has an exciting programme of astronomical events throughout the year - Northumberland Dark Sky Events.

Discover our stargazing events below.
