Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The time has come to seek out darkness. Our lives are getting brighter and brighter, thanks to screens being our constant companions. Plus, many of us are rarely far away enough from a street lamp or illuminated office block to cop a really good look at the night’s sky.
To embark on some truly amazing astral gazing, head out of the city to one of these stargazing spots. From Cornish beaches and Kent hills to the furthest reaches of Scotland, where the Northern Lights might make an appearance if you’re lucky, here’s our pick of the best weekends away for stargazing in the UK.
Please note: Be mindful that travel restrictions in Wales and Scotland may differ from the rest of the UK. Some of the places we mention may be closed, or have social distancing guidelines in place. Please check in advance before you travel.
