Bulby's Wood Car Park

Bulby's Wood Car Park

Ingram, Alnwick, NE66 4LT

This free car park just on the outskirts of the village of Ingram is an excellent stargazing location, with amazing views of the dark skies of Northumberland directly above and minimal light pollution.


Bulby's Wood Car Park is a Dark Sky Discovery Site, an officially recognised place where anyone can stargaze. Most such locations have overnight parking (sometimes with a fee); however, many do not allow overnight camping. There may or may not be toilet facilities.
