Twice Brewed Inn & Observatory
Bardon Mill, Hexham, NE47 7AN
Experience the incredible starry skies above Northumberland with a team of astronomers from Go Stargazing at the comfortable, welcoming and awesome stargazing location of the Twice Brewed Inn!
Located within the protected dark sky park the venue benefits from minimal light pollution. You’ll be able to view the Milky Way arching across the sky and see thousands more stars than what can normally be seen from our towns and cities. What’s more this event has been timed especially to coincide when there will be no bright Moon to spoil the view!
Why not make a weekend of it exploring the dark skies by night and the nearby Vindolanda Roman Fort, The Sill Landscape Discovery Centre and the world famous Sycamore Gap on Hadrian’s Wall by day? The Twice Brewed Inn are offering fantastic deals and discounts for those wanting to get away for a stargazing break!
