Now in its fifth year, the Exmoor Dark Skies Festival brings together a variety of events to celebrate the fabulous starry skies above Exmoor Dark Sky Reserve.

Events range from organised stargazing events where you can explore the skies using telescopes to nighttime walks and wildlife safaris, art exhibitions, owl experiences, online tutorials and planetarium presentations. So why not book some stargazing friendly accommodation and make a stargazing holiday out of it!?

We’ve included those events that include practical stargazing; for a full list of events, see the official Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2021 website. Clear skies!
