Family Stargazing and Moonwatch

Join Shropshire Astronomical Society for an evening of stargazing and moonwatch-ing suitable for all the family. Free for National Trust members, under 16s and Shropshire Astronomical Society, non-members £4.

  • Booking not needed

Thanks to the inky black skies around Attingham the moon and stars seem to shine all the more brightly. Join us for a magical evening in front of the Mansion to find out more about the night sky. Great for beginners, but also suitable for those who want to learn more, or would just like to take the chance to stargaze at Attingham.

If the weather's wet, join the Society in the Orangery to see what's hidden behind the rain clouds using specialist equipment (with a family friendly introduction).
