Lantic Bay Car Park - National Trust

Lantic Bay Car Park - National Trust

Lanteglos, Fowey, Cornwall, PL23 1NP

This location on the South coast of Cornwall offers fantastic views of dark skies towards the south across the English Channel. It’s proximity to a farm towards the West and the town of Fowey a little further distant will result in some sky glow, however, this readily accessible car park location will offer amazing views of the skies above.


Lantic Bay Car Park - National Trust 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.
