The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre

The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre

Bardon Mill, Hexham, Northumberland, NE47 7AN, North East

Newly renovated in 2017 with nearly £15m of investment this premier visitor centre gives easy access to Hadrians Wall and Sycamore Gap by day and the amazing dark skies above Northumberland at night.  The Youth Hostel offers ideal accommodation for overnight stargazers.  A favoured location for the Go Stargazing team who regularly organise stargazing events here.


The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre 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.
