London and Surrey Hills Stargazing Experience for 2-Hours




Go stargazing in London with an experienced astronomer from Dark Sky Telescope Hire as your guide. Our 2-hour private stargazing experience nights run from various open air locations in London including Hampstead Heath and Wandsworth Common, and in the Surrey Hills from Ranmore Common near Dorking and Newlands Corner near Guildford. Discover the night sky from a city location. We'll use a big portable telescope to whisk you off on a journey across the cosmos in search of stunning star systems that could harbour alien life, ancient star clusters hidden to the naked eye, and the light from distant galaxies millions of light years away. If the moon is in the sky you'll get a high-definition view of craters, ancient lava fields and even mountain chains on the moon. Planets too can be explored if they are visible in the sky on the date you choose. 

See the product description below for further details.

Experience an amazing journey across the night sky with our 2-hour London and Surrey Hills stargazing experience. We use a big telescope to take you out beyond the lights of the city to distant stars thousands of light years away. Our experienced astronomer will use a laser pointer to draw out stars and constellations visible in the night sky from London and the Surrey Hills. You'll then discover what you can see in a big telescope. Highlights include stunning star systems where alien life could exist, dazzling star clusters shining huge distances away from earth, red supergiants on the verge of collapsing into supernovae, and even distant galaxies far beyond our own. If the moon and / or planets are visible at the time then we'll visit them too with the telescope.

When can the voucher be used?

We run stargazing experiences in London all year round, except for 24 -31 December, and subject to our astronomer's availability. The voucher recipient can book for a week night or weekend night with any start time, so long as it is dark! If you want to see a planet through a telescope then that can be arranged! Planets move against the background stars from our viewpoint here on earth, so just let us know what planet you'd like to see and we'll tell you the best time of year to view it.

What if it is raining or cloudy?

Naturally cloud and rain is always a threat. When using the voucher to book the stargazing experience we recommend that you choose 2 or 3 nights initially on which you’d be happy for us to run the experience. If it is cloudy / raining on all selected nights then we’ll simply roll the experience forward to an alternative date that works. We can keep rolling the experience forward until we are able to run the stargazing for you.

How to book a date for your stargazing session

If you already have a voucher please email with your voucher number so we can let you know dates & time slots that are available.


We are open for business. All orders will be processed and dispatched within 1 - 2 working days. We have restarted our private stargazing experiences at locations in England and Wales for individuals, couples, families and small groups from the same household or different households using safe social distancing and hygiene measures to ensure your complete safety.

Super evening with Seb exploring the galaxy. He is very knowledgeable and completely enthusiastic. We visited planets, stars at different stages in their cycle, star clusters, double clusters , nebulae and even another galaxy. Thrilled and really felt transported. A great gift!
