Northumberland - where the attractions don't stop when the sun goes down!

December 2013 saw the designation of the largest area of protected dark sky in Europe in the form of the Northumberland Dark Sky Park. Centred around the Northumberland National Park, the designation offers protection to around 580 square miles of the night sky from light pollution.

Visitors to Northumberland have always been treated to spectacular views of the Milky Way, the constellations and even the Andromeda Galaxy, this designation will now protect it for generations to come. You can find your perfect stay in Northumberland by using our Dark Sky search button
