STARGAZING

Exmoor Dark Sky Reserve is rightly proud of being the first dark sky reserve in Europe. Much of the region is free from light pollution and rightly claims to have some of the darkest skies in the country.

Going stargazing in Exmoor Dark Sky Reserve will reward you with amazing views of the cosmos. The sky is filled with many more stars than you would normally see from a town or city. The glow of the Milky Way is easily spotted on dark moonless nights.
