Dark Skies Walk

Dark Skies Walk

23 February 2024

19.00 to 21.00

In celebration of the annual Dark Skies Festival 2024, Pied A Terre Adventures would like to invite you to join them for this gentle night-time adventure walk on the South Downs. In May 2016 the South Downs National Park became the world’s newest International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR) and these walks will be around some of the darkest locations in the park. Whether clear or cloudy, this is a true adventure and not to be missed! With a hugely experienced and qualified local guide leading the way, venture out into the South Downs National Park and enjoy the vast open skies from viewpoints at some stunning locations. Along the trail, your guide will pause to enlighten you on the fascinating natural history and geology of the area – there may even be time to refine some night navigation skills. While you walk, make the most of the peace and stillness; listen for nocturnal wildlife, soak up the 360 degree panoramas, spot Sussex villages, local landmarks and the coastline, and weather permitting, take the time to wonder at the stars and planets as they appear. With limited light pollution, this Dark Skies Reserve is a great location to test your astronomical knowledge!
