Wellow Public Car Park

Station Road, Wellow, BA2 8QB, South West


Escape the bright city lights and join members of Bath Astronomers for this public stargazing session at their favoured dark sky location in Wellow. This short notice event will only go ahead weather permitting -- an announcement will be made on their Facebook page two hours before the event is due to start.

- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.


This event is being organised by Bath Astronomers who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling. If you do attend it would be fantastic if you could let the organiser know you found them via Go Stargazing!


Please check the organisers webpage for this event to confirm it is going ahead before travelling.
