Buriton lies at the foot of the South Downs escarpment, just east of the A3 road. The quality of the dark night skies above Buriton have been officially recognised as a ‘Dark Skies Discovery Site’.

Visit the Buriton Community website for more information; http://www.buriton.info/

Buriton is an attractive and historic place with a friendly and active community. Walkers, cyclists and horse-riders are welcomed but car parking within the village can be very limited.

The lovely village setting and large green open space behind the village hall in Buriton is the perfect place to gaze upon the night sky and appreciate all it has to offer.
