Stargazing hub for Exford…..Events every week throughout the year!
There is no better place to stargaze than in Exmoor on a clear, moonless night, and if the moon is out then you can get some great views of her craters and mares, even just with a pair of binoculars.
Exmoor National Park have designated Exford Bridge tearooms together with Wildaboutexmoor to be a Dark Sky Discovery Hub, a centre for information and events, all about our wonderful skies.
If you want to know what you should be looking for on a particular night, then check out the tearooms noticeboard. We will update the information each month with current meteor showers, the visible planets and where to find them, and phases of the moon.
Also on the board will be any upcoming dark skies events on Exmoor, with contact details should you wish to join them.
We will be hosting regular dark skies events at the tearoom, with a planetarium presentation to show you around the sky in warmth and comfort with a delicious meal and full use of the bar.
Come and join us on a Thursday night from 7.00pm, all through the summer, for a barbecue and sociable starry information evening at the Hub. You will leave well equipped to enjoy Exmoor’s starry skies during your stay.
From October, we will start the evening at 6.00pm, with a good warming supper menu,to make the most of our dark nights.
£40 per adult, £20 under 16) (An optional night walk into the dark sky reserve will be available after your meal, weather permitting, priced at £5.00 per person, payable on the night )
