Keep scrolling to discover our dark skies

We have already seen an autumn of active auroras over Northumberland’s coastline and the Northumberland Dark Sky Park, and that was just the beginning. Discover the magic of Northumberland during the chillier months where dark, cold nights can be spent in a cosy pub in front of a warming open fire, or beneath the darkest skies in the country where the Milky Way can be admired with the naked eye. During the day, you can admire frost-tipped landscapes, adventure activities and almighty castles.
