Stargazing Experience

Discover the sky at night with this exclusive Stargazing Experience which includes an overnight stay, Yorkshire breakfast, access to the Roof Top Spa, supper or dinner at Clocktower followed by an informative and engaging 30 minute Introduction to Stargazing.

Relax with some starbathing in the warming waters of the Spa Bath or Hydrotherapy Pool on the Roof Top Spa and Garden 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.   

Taking place in Rudding Park cinema with its starlight ceiling and complimentary popcorn, you will first learn how to guide yourself around some of the more easily recognisable features of the night sky; easily recognisable constellations, features of the moon, how to spot the planets, and other things such as aurorae, star clusters before venturing outside to observe the night sky and try your hand at stargazing.
