See the stars at St Agnes and Chapel Porth

Placeholder Image

Awarded Dark Sky Discovery status, St Agnes and Chapel Porth offers a breathtaking coastal landscape, with panoramic views, plenty of heritage and wonderful wildlife to spot on your visit.

 A vast low tide beach and a sea of glowing heather make it hard to believe this area once had an industrial past.

More stargazing spots in the South West:

  • Get closer to the stars at Dunkery Beacon on the Holnicote estate, the highest point on Exmoor, with sweeping skies and very little light pollution.
  • Godolphin Hill offers 360 degree views with no artificial lights close by and plenty of native wildlife.
  • A fantastic, peaceful spot away from the intrusion of lights, South Milton Sands is a perfect place to watch the sunset whilst looking out to sea and enjoying the wildlife in the wetlands behind.
  • Situated on the edge of Salisbury Plain, Stonehenge Landscape occupies a large, sparsely populated area ideal for stargazing. There are regular stargazing and storytelling events held with Chipping Norton Amateur Astronomy Group. For more information search on the events page, or phone the central box office on 0844 249 1895.
  • Beautifully positioned at the head of the Fal estuary, Trelissick Park commands panoramic views over the area. It is far enough away from the glow of nearby Truro to make this a great star gazing spot.
