SCIENCE & STORIES

14 Feb 

Search for the stars at Kielder Observatory and watch in amazement at the Aurora Borealis or as they are better known as The Northern Lights. Nothing spells out romance more than sharing one of the wonders of our world with a loved one. Enjoy the science and stories behind the lights and learn how the light show like no other is formed. Head out to the observation deck and gaze at the dark skies and maybe even the Milky Way, all from one of Europe’s darkest locations. A sparkling evening you won’t want to miss!
