Lundy Island

Lundy Island

Isle Of Lundy, Lundy, LUNDY, South West

Frequent sailings from Bideford Quay and Ilfracombe Harbour in the summertime and winter helicopter service from Hartland Heliport makes this amazing stargazing location relatively accessible! There is no street lighting and electricity is turned off at midnight! Seeing the Perseids meteor shower in August (if it coincides with a new moon) from here would be awesome!

Lundy Island 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.
