Prebooking will open soon on Bath Abbey’s website.

You can also book on the day (subject to space) at the Orange Grove entrance or the Abbey’s Welcome Desk.

Subject to clear skies, you’ll be guided across the Somerset skies and get to look through a high-quality telescope. The tour also includes a hot drink on the descent from the 212 steps to the roof.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
