Hawes National Park Centre

Hawes National Park Centre

Burtersett Road, Hawes, DL8 3NT, Yorkshire and The Humber

The car park at the Dales Countryside Museum, just outside Hawes, benefits from particularly low levels of light pollution and is free to park from 7pm to 6am. The photo of the Milky Way over Buttertubs pass is used with kind permission from Paul Clark.


Hawes National Park Centre 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.
