Cerne Abbas Giant Viewpoint

Cerne Abbas Giant Viewpoint

Acreman Street, Cerne Abbas, Dorset, DT2 7JX

This small car park for viewing the Cerne Abbas Giant by day makes for a great location to observe the skies by night. Surrounding trees and bushes help to shield the location from passing car lights without affecting limiting sky views.


Cerne Abbas Giant Viewpoint is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
