Exmoor is Europe’s first designated Dark Sky Reserve and is still regarded as the best place to stargaze in the UK.  During the annual Exmoor Dark Skies Festival around 50 events, suitable for all ages, will take place all over Exmoor National Park. Events are run by the Exmoor National Park Authority, businesses and groups and can all be booked individually with the relevant organiser. Keep checking the webpage below for details.

Don’t forget that you can hire telescopes all year round from the Exmoor National Park Centre in the centre of Dulverton.
