Stargazing Experiences at High Force Waterfall

The North Pennines attracts thousands each year keen to soak up some of England’s darkest night skies through a stargazing experience. See night-time transformed into a tapestry of constellations. And if you get really lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights from late September to March.

Nestled in the heart of Upper Teesdale, High Force Waterfall provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable stargazing adventure. High Force has the darkest skies across the country measured by the Sky Quality Meter but what makes them extra special is that on a clear night, the cliffs shield the observer from light pollution, making it a truly unique dark sky experience. Away from the city lights, our location offers unparalleled visibility, allowing you to witness the brilliance of the cosmos in all its glory.

Treat someone with a passion for the stars to an evening of discovery and learning, or enjoy it yourself with your partner, friends or family members.
