Grimwith at night - a blue velvety night sky with a glow from the stars

Here at Grassington Bunk Barn have the wonderful opportunity to host an evening of stargazing with expert Astronomer Richard Darn. Spotting ancient constellations and finding distant galaxies. This is a fun practical session to take your astro knowledge on to a new level. With a laser guided tour, using binoculars and telescopes to unlock some of the treasures of the cosmos. You will even get chance to handle space rocks over four billion years old!  Great for kids over six and adults.
