From October onwards, the darker evenings create the perfect opportunity for stargazing. West Penwith is an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) and has recently been designated an International Dark Sky Park (one of just seven sites in the UK). This means the area is naturally dark and has minimal light pollution.
Head out on a cloudless night to experience nature’s spectacle in the sky. Top stargazing spots include the Merry Maidens Stone Circle in Boleigh and Carn Galver Engine House in Zennor – you can find more through Go Stargazing.
