    Default Hotspots for stargazing UK



    I was just wondering if there were any prime locations for stargazing around the Yorkshire area preferably but if not I can travel.

    Try Dalby Forrest. The Scarborough & Rydale Astro Soc have their observatorys there. I think they have public open days (nights) during the winter months, the first friday in the month. Been there a couple of times when on holiday.
    Hope this helps

    I know it's a bit further out, but Kielder Observatory in Northumberland is well worth a visit!
