Supper & Stargazing at Whinlatter



Join us for a fantastic evening at Whinlatter for supper and stargazing. Andrew Gray will present to you an Introduction to the Night Sky, with opportunities to look through the telescope and admire the dark skies of Whinlatter and all that it presents. Siskins Café will provide a delicious homemade pie, which is included in the ticket price.

After enjoying your food Andrew will deliver an engaging talk on the subject of the night sky with a chance to get answers to those questions that pop into your mind.

Parking at Whinlatter is also included in the ticket price, so all you have to do it book, turn up and enjoy a brilliant evening at England’s only true mountain forest.

Booking is essential as places are limited, so make sure to book soon to avoid disappointment. Some of the evening will take place outside on the terrace at Siskins Café, therefore it would be good to be dressed for the weather to make sure you keep warm.
