Stargazing on the Isle of Wight

Isle of Wight dark skiesThe Isle of Wight has some of the darkest skies in the UK, which helped the Island secure UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status. Visit Isle of Wight has just launched a brilliant dark skies page on the website showing best spots for an astronomical night out. The Island Planetarium & Vectis Astronomical Society are useful resources if you want to learn more. Our Isle of Wight holiday cottages are well placed to do stargazing from the garden – some of our regular guests already bring their telescopes!
