Stargazing Experience

Discover the sky at night with this exclusive Stargazing Experience, which includes an overnight stay, Yorkshire breakfast, two hour access to the Roof Top Spa, supper at Clocktower followed by an informative and engaging introduction to Astronomy and Stargazing.

Relax with some starbathing in the warming waters of the Spa Bath or Hydrotherapy Pool on the Roof Top Spa as darkness falls.

Astronomer, Richard Darn who helped establish Europe’s largest Dark Sky Park, will help newcomers to stargazing find their way around the cosmos. Richard will provide an informative and engaging presentation to guide guests around some of the more easily recognisable features of the night sky; before venturing outside to observe the night sky.

“We will go in search of the brilliant winter stars and constellations. Star clusters and colourful double stars are some of the wonders we will reveal along with Mars spied through a powerful telescope and the distant icy world of Uranus. We will also keep our eyes peeled for shooting stars and if the moon is in the sky take you on a fly-by of craters and mountain ranges!”
