Dunkery Beacon Moonrise and Sunset Walk details...

Open 11 Jan - 8 Apr

Keen to learn more about the night skies? One of the best places to go for stargazing in Somerset is Exmoor. So book your places and join a walk to the top of Dunkery Beacon as the sun sets over the moor. There will be a chat about the night sky and as you descend the moon will rise over the sea.

Then, back at base camp, there will be hot drinks, telescopes to use and lots of time for astrophotography. Remember sturdy walking shoes and warm clothes!
