Discover Kielder Observatory

All year round star gazing and astronomy heaven, Kielder Observatory is located in the heart of Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. They are the largest gold tier dark sky park in Europe, thanks to minimal light pollution. With events every evening, winter nights are darkest and best for viewing deep sky objects such as galaxies or nebulae, while in summer you can view star clusters, shooting stars and see the moon and sun’s surfaces using our incredible telescopes.
