Dark Skies

The skies in Northumberland are so deep and so dark that Northumberland National Park along with Kielder Water & Forest Park and Kielder Observatory Astronomical Society have officially been awarded 'Dark Sky Status' by the International Dark Skies Association; the leading international organisation combating light pollution worldwide; to become Europe's largest Dark Sky Park.

Billions of shimmering stars making up our Milky Way, a plethora of planets, dazzling meteor showers and the glow of galaxies like Andromeda - the dark skies of Northumberland as seen on Robson Green's Tales from Northumberland are home to star gazing opportunities that are out of this world.

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.

Wooler Common (1 mile from Wooler Town Centre) and Ingram Valley (10 miles from Wooler) are two of the best locations near Wooler to view the dark skies.

There are lots of places to enjoy the night sky in the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. They are easy to find. There are two sites near to Wooler Hostel; Kirknewton Village Hall and Ingram/ Bulby's Wood, both accessed via the A697 road
