Brimham Rocks - National Trust
Summerbridge, Harrogate, HG3 4DW, Yorkshire and The Humber
The open countryside is the perfect place to see the amazing night sky and to gaze at the natural beauty of the stars and constellations above. We’ve teamed up with York Astronomical Society who’ll be bringing along their telescopes and expert knowledge to Brimham. In the event of poor visibility, they’ll be giving a talk in the Visitor Centre at 6.30pm. We’ll be opening up the refreshment kiosk too into the evening. This event is one of the last in this year’s Nidderdale Dark Skies Festival.
This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 01/03/2020
