Stargazing in the Forest

To really experience the night sky in all its glory you need to find a truly dark location away from the glow of street lights, houses and traffic in the city. This is why our beautiful forest locations offer the perfect environment for a night spent gazing at the stars. To help you make the most of this wonderful opportunity we've created a month-by-month star guide for our forests detailing the equipment you'll need, your first five constellations to spot, some fascinating stargazing facts for budding young astronomers as well as further detail on five new constellations you can see each month. Simply click on the relevant monthly link and print out the PDF for your very own Forest Holidays star guide. Why not check out our Beginner's Guide to Stargazing for a handy guide on how to get started? Happy stargazing!
