Newbiggin Maritime Centre

Newbiggin Maritime Centre

Church Point, Newbiggin-by-the-sea, Northumberland, NE64 6DB

Visitor Centre located near the heritage village Newbiggin-by-the-sea, this venue benefits from its coastal location with skies being darker than it’s proximity to the town might suggest. It is often used for stargazing events organised by Northumberland Astronomical Society.


Newbiggin Maritime Centre is a private location and is only accessible out of normal hours for stargazing by prior arrangement or when public events are scheduled.
