In celebration of the annual Dark Skies Festival 2024, we would like to invite you to join us for a series of gentle night-time adventure walks on the South Downs. In May 2016 the South Downs National Park became the world’s newest International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR) and these walks will be around some of the darkest locations in the park. Whether clear or cloudy, this is a true adventure and not to be missed!

With a hugely experienced and qualified local guide leading the way, venture out into the South Downs National Park and enjoy the vast open skies from viewpoints at some stunning locations. Along the trail, your guide will pause to enlighten you on the fascinating natural history and geology of the area – there may even be time to refine some night navigation skills. While you walk, make the most of the peace and stillness; listen for nocturnal wildlife, soak up the 360 degree panoramas, spot Sussex villages, local landmarks and the coastline, and weather permitting, take the time to wonder at the stars and planets as they appear. With limited light pollution, this Dark Skies Reserve is a great location to test your astronomical knowledge!

After our walk, maybe take the time to visit one of the charming local pubs nearby.

Due to popular demand, we have added an additional date this month – the 23rd February.

Time: 19.00-21.00

Location: Bignor

Suitable for children aged 10+ and must be accompanied by an attending adult, one per child.

NB Everyone attending must bring a torch.  Due to the remote location of the walk, a car is needed to reach the car park.  We may be able to assist with a train station pick up, subject to availability.

The walk will go ahead in most weather conditions.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss your booking in more detail and we would be delighted to share our knowledge and passion for this stunning area with you to help ensure you have the perfect trip.
