Exmoor National Park

Exford Dark Skies Discovery Hub planetarium and Barbecue

  • Location Minehead
  • Price from £15.00


  We meet at the Exford Bridge Tearooms to share a delicious barbecue cooked by your hosts, Bruce and Claire. Then the sociable part of our stargazing evening kicks off with a planetarium presentation with "Wildaboutexmoor" on the widescreen tv to show you around those clear Exmoor skies. Deeper sky objects are found and explored and then we head out to try out our telescopes with an optional dark skies walk at a small extra cost to finish off the evening, weather and darkness permitting.
Winter hours, and during the dark Skies Festival in October/November, we start at 6.00pm, rather than 7.00pm.
The Tearooms will be a wonderfully cosy place to spend an evening with a locally sourced, three course meal, our planetarium  presentation and an informal chat about the night question is a silly question!
 Weather permitting, there will be an optional night hike under the stars to use our telescopes back at our farmhouse.(small extra charge)
