Stargazing in North Yorkshire

From populated areas such as a town or city you’ll be lucky to see more than a few dozen stars but the further away you get from towns and cities, the more stars you’ll see, from less polluted areas such as our location you can see up to 2,000.

Three places near North Yorkshire Lodges have been named as as special locations to view the night sky, these are at Sutton Bank, Danby, and Dalby Observatories in Dalby Forest. They have been named as Dark Sky Discovery Sites which means these are great places to view the Milky Way galaxy.
