Dark Skies Stargazing in Northumberland Dark Sky ParkExperience the incredible starry skies above Northumberland with a team of astronomers from Go Stargazing at the comfortable, welcoming and awesome stargazing location of the Twice Brewed Inn! Located within the protected dark sky park the venue benefits from minimal light pollution. You’ll be able to view the Milky Way arching across the sky and see thousands more stars than what can normally be seen from our towns and cities. What’s more our events have been timed especially to coincide when there will be no bright Moon to spoil the view.

You’ll enjoy an inspiring presentation on an astronomically themed topic, ideally suited for beginners and novices, before heading outdoors for a laser guided tour of the constellations then observing incredibly distant objects including planets, galaxies, nebulae and star clusters using large aperture telescopes. You’re welcome to bring along your own telescope along for expert help! Our team is always prepared for in case the weather is poor, and have fun, interactive sessions ready for indoor learning. Of course, whenever there is a gap in the clouds, we will get you outside straightaway.
Before your stargazing experience you might choose to have a hearty meal in the restaurant. Why not make a weekend of it exploring the dark skies by night and the nearby Vindolanda Roman Fort, The Sill Landscape Discovery Centre and the world famous Sycamore Gap on Hadrian’s Wall by day? The Twice Brewed Inn are offering fantastic deals and discounts for those wanting to get away for a stargazing break!
