Sutton Bank Star Hub

Sutton Bank Star Hub

Sutton Bank National Park Centre, Thirsk, YO7 2EX

The Sutton Bank Star Hub opened in Autumn 2021 and is a fantastic location to explore the dark skies above the North York Moors Dark Sky Reserve.

Along with a viewing area ideal for setting up telescopes, the hub offers some warm indoor space perfect for presentations, making it an ideal location for local Astronomical Societies and independent astronomers to run public stargazing events.

The Star Hub is a project by the North York Moors National Park Authority.
