Enjoy a sensational adventure among the stars with a 2-hour private stargazing experience in the Peak District National Park. We'll whisk you off on a grand tour of the stars and constellations that we can see from one of our stargazing sites in the Peak District including Hathersage west of Sheffield, Parsley Hay between Ashbourne and Buxton, or from Upper Hulme near Leek. You'll get to see an amazing array of celestial gems close-up using one of our large telescopes. Sights include ancient star clusters sparkling like diamonds, stunning star systems that could harbour alien life, and far flung galaxies millions of light years from earth. It's the perfect birthday or Christmas gift for anyone with a fascination in astronomy or the night sky in general.

  • 2-hour stargazing experience gift voucher for the Peak District valid for 2 years from month of issue with option to extend for a further year free of charge.

  • Instructions on how to use the voucher

  • A map showing our stargazing locations in the Peak District

The 2-hour Peak District Stargazing Experience is suitable for individuals, couples, families and small groups. This is a private stargazing experience run exclusively for the gift box recipient plus any family and friends they wish to bring along. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Voucher recipient may have up to 15 friends and family members share in the experience at no extra charge.

When can the voucher be used?

Use the stargazing voucher to book your astronomical adventure with us anytime of the year. We run on week nights and weekend nights  except 24-31 December, and subject to our astronomer’s availability. Start times are available to suit the voucher recipient. During the autumn, winter and spring we can start as soon as it gets dark. If you're booking for a night between May and August inclusive our start time will be 10pm or 11pm owing to the lingering summer twilight.

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.

Peak District National Park Stargazing Experience 2-Hours
Barry Lynch

18/4/18 . I have just got home from what i can only say is an experience that was well worth the wait. If you have ever looked up in awe of the night sky then this journey across the sky is what you need. The knowledge provided by seb is amazing and has changed my view of the night sky forever an add to that his pure enthusiasm which is infectious the time flies by and will lead to one of the most enjoyable experiences you will ever have. I can not recommended this package more highly. Just pure wonder and magic. 5 star. Bring comfortable warm clothes and good foot wear like boots. And a hat would be my only thing I would advise.

Thank you Seb for a fantastic two hour stargazing experience. (22/3/22) You are a fountain of knowledge and communicate with such ease. The experience was a birthday gift and one that we will never forget especially the grand finale of an orange moon. Would definitely recommend this evening of mind blowing wonderment. Thanks again.

Excellent experience. Seb was very good explained about the planets, stars and constellations in a down to earth and interesting way, myself, son and daughter all thought the same. As for me I've discovered you're never to old to learn and be amazed. I'm an ex sailor and have always been fascinated by the stars as we used to use them in navigation as an exercise I didn't know too much about the universe, now thanks to Seb I look through my binoculars with a new found awe. Thanks Seb for making this experience great

Stargazing Experience

We had a fantastic Stargazing experience on Saturday night. I booked this a little while ago and it was absolutely amazing and better than I could have hoped for when I bought it for my husband. Seb was absolutely brilliant and so knowledgeable and the experience was catered to everyone in our group - some who have a real interest and some knowledge to others who knew very little - and we all had a great time! I would absolutely recommend this experience! Thank you, Seb!
