Star Gazing on Exmoor

Exmoor National Park has been designated the first International Dark Sky Reserve in Europe!

Exmoor National Park is home to some of the darkest skies in the country so it’s a great place to gaze at the stars. Good spots near Lynton & Lynmouth are County Gate and Brendon Two Gates.

On a clear night the night sky of Exmoor is simply stunning when many astronomical sights can be seen through the naked eye.

To help you get the best star gazing download your copy of Exmoor’s Dark Skies Pocket Guide and your own Exmoor planesphere.
