Opened in Spring 2023, the Talkin Tarn Stargazing Pavilion offers a beautiful location to experience the dark skies above the region. The building’s design is inspired by the shape of a bird’s nest and built using traditional materials. Located in the South-East corner of the Tarn, the venue offers a quiet place to take time out both day and night.
