Robin Hood's Bay Car Park
Robin Hood's Bay Road, Whitby, North Yorkshire, YO22 4QN
Join Large Outdoors for a fabulous walk from the iconic Robin Hood’s Bay to Ravenscar to experience the coastline of the North York Moors National Park, a designated International Dark Sky Reserve, by night.
During this 3 hour experience, you will wander in awe as you walk under a truly dark sky, switch off from everyday life as you absorb the feeling of remoteness from the towns and villages beyond and enjoy walking with an experienced guide and a group of fellow star chasers.
The moon will be the guiding light of this walk, allowing you to experience truly dark skies with seasoned professionals.
This event is part of the North York Moors Dark Skies Fringe Festival 2023.
Please note that this has already taken place on 05/11/2023
