dark skies discovery bar

 Join us at The Dark Skies Discovery Hub in Exford

Every Thursday night we host a great evening for budding astronomers!

We get together for a sociable meal and planetarium evening, describing the night sky as it is at this time of year and answering any questions you may have on telescopes or astrology generally.

A stargazing walk in exmoor national park dark skies reserve is an optional extra, with the help of a laser pointer to spot the visible constellations in real life, along with any current planets.

If the moon is up then we can enjoy looking at the craters and detail at the terminator, where the viewing is crispest.

£35 per adult, £15 under 16 years

Please book on info@wildaboutexmoor.com

Come stargazing in Exmoor Dark Sky reserve!

Living on Exmoor you can’t help but notice the stars.  Often we have just had to stop the car on the moor to wonder at the Milky Way, filling the sky above us.

If you would like to join us on a dark skies walk then please phone to arrange some possible dates, we can then go ahead if the weather is clear.

We take groups up Dunkery Beacon for a full 360′ view, minimum charge £95, or £35 per head for groups of more than 3.

Complimentary sundowners, homemade savouries and cakes plus learn about the  universe with the use of our telescope and binoculars, so wrap up warm and come and have some fun!

 Dark skies Walk and Farmhouse Supper (or pub supper)

 An evening walking under the stars with a delicious supper,home made with local produce, and complimentary drinks.

We are very happy to provide this for your group if you would like to book a particular date. It makes a fun evening to kickstart a hen weekend, for example, or an office party, or to enjoy as part of your family holiday.

We run a  number of these events during the year and as part of Exmoor National Park’s Dark Skies Festival. They are always very popular so book early to guarantee your place!

Stargazing talks

Do you have a group of people who would enjoy a talk on the Exmoor Dark Sky Reserve and how to find your way around the sky?

We are very happy to come out and show you how to find your way around the constellations and planets that are visible at different times of the year.

We can recommend apps and supply information to set you on your way to really enjoying the Exmoor skies at night.

On a clear night we can use our telescopes to find deep sky objects such as Ring Nebula, other galaxies and star clusters. Otherwise we can simulate what can be seen on a clear night!!

Price £100  to £150 depending on size of group  and time required.
