On 8 December the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks were designated International Dark Sky Reserves, meaning there’s now even more reason to start dreaming of a stargazing trip to Britain.
Named for the exceptional quality of their nocturnal environments, International Dark Sky Reserves can be found across Britain. Exmoor National Park was Europe’s first region to receive the accolade in 2011. Cranborne Chase, the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia and South Downs National Parks followed, with the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks now joining their ranks.

Free from air and light pollution, these newly crowned International Dark Sky Reserves deliver unforgettable views of the Milky Way, meteors, and even the Northern Lights. Beyond stargazing, these spaces also allow you to get back to nature and experience the magic of the great outdoors in all number of ways. This is especially true during the various Dark Skies Festivals, which celebrate the night skies and the eclectic mix of wildlife found in Britain’s National Parks.
