NORTHUMBERLAND DARK SKIES TOUR & ASTRONOMY EXPERIENCE 

Dark Skies Tours - logo

Let us help you escape the glow and glare of city lights.

We chose Northumberland for its dark skies and wide-open views where you’ll see deeper into our universe than you ever thought possible.

Experience some of England’s darkest skies on this extraordinary tour experience taking you deep into Northumberland’s Hadrian’s Wall country. Your transport awaits right in the centre of Newcastle to teleport you into the wilds of Northumberland National Park.

Your journey begins right in Newcastle with mini coach pick up from Maldron Hotel and heading out into England’s most tranquil county – Northumberland!

On-site you’ll enjoy tea/coffees and an inspiring astronomical presentation from our expert astronomer (don’t worry – this is definitely NOT boring!).

Afterwards, head outdoors where you have the opportunity experience the incredible starry skies above Northumberland and use some of equipment provided! Take charge of telescopes, handle astro rock and learn about the constellations from your guide!

End your experience with included transfers back to Newcastle city centre (in time for jumping into Newcastle’s nightlife (optional!)…

At Newcastle Tour Company, the safety & health of our guests are always of paramount importance to us. Our Northumberland Dark Skies Tour has been optimised for post Covid-19 tours & follows current health protocols.
