Dark Skies Cumbria

Amazing, beautiful, stunning, scary, dramatic, unbelieveable... just some of the words used to describe seeing the splendour of the unspoilt night sky.

Dark Skies Cumbria is a project encouraged by Golakes and Cumbria Tourism that aims to encourage people to make best use of Cumbria's tremendous landscape and experience getting out into places where you have a view of the clear night sky, free of the light pollution of urban areas.

Cumbria is blessed with so many great places to experience true dark sky viewing and this page is designed to help you make the most of this great pasttime. It doesn't take a lot to get started and can be as simple as taking a nice cosy blanket and binoculars with you to see the true beauty of the night sky at it's best.
