ANOTHER PLACE EVENT: GUIDED NIGHT WALKS

May 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The stunning dark night sky on night walks in the Lake District

Guided night walks for children.

Through the woods and fells around the Ullswater way, they’ll have head torches and the stars to light the way. Starting from the hotel, night walks are a wonderful way to gain a new perspective on our surroundings. Suitable for confident walkers aged 5 years and over.

Light pollution has stolen from many of us one of the most extraordinary sights on Earth – the brightest stars from the billions in our Milky Way, the streak of meteors, our neighbouring planets such as Venus and Jupiter, and the glow of other galaxies like Andromeda.

“People have been looking at the night sky, telling stories, for the entirety of recorded human history. But when we moved into cities, we lost that deep connection with the universe.” – Marek Kukula

On a brighter note, you don’t need to go far to reconnect with the universe, Bryan Cox style, and find the dark side. Family guided night walks at Another Place offer truly stunning stellar views of Ullswater under the starry night sky.

Guided night walks are for the whole family and does not form part of the Kids’ Zone supervised sessions.

6.30pm – 8.30pm

Please book upon arrival.
