Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
London may be one of the most light-polluted spots on the planet, but don’t let that fool you into thinking you can’t enjoy a city stargazing session. There are plenty of astronomical societies in the capital flying in the face of the strong city glow and proving that you can see planets, star clusters, galaxies in Zone 1 and beyond.
Travel out to the fringes of the city, where you'll find small-scale astronomy society meetings teaching those new to nebula how to set up telescopes and spot stars or small observatory where you can survey the night sky. Stay in central London where you can tour the night sky with the help of an astronomer or sip on wine farmed in conjunction with the lunar cycle before peeping through a Dobsonian telescope. Or, why not have your very own stargazing session in some of the darkest areas of the city. To infinity and beyond!
Be aware that some events may be subject to change if it is raining or cloudy, so do ring ahead in advance to confirm.
