    Fantastic Trip even though it was raining hard
    We booked this well in advance and unfortunately it was absolutely hammering down on our night. However the team was supperb at sharing their expertise and enthusiasm and whilst it would have been great to be able to see the stars it was always luck of the draw with UK's weather. We really enjoyed the talks and would really like to return in winter.
    Thank you for you review- we're really pleased that you enjoyed your experience, even if the weather wasn't on our side. We hope you'll visit again soon and we'll keep our fingers crossed for clear skies for you!

    A well-worth visit to star gaze
    We attended the Star Gazing Event and would highly recommend it (beginners or not!). A great team of kind, passionate and knowledgeable people welcomed us and we had a wonderful time (more than it said actually, an hour more!) We learnt a lot and enjoyed being out that night talking about galaxies, meteors, history of astronomy etc. You will hold in your hands rocks that are billion years old and even if a piece with pre-solar system grains. The building is beautiful and we get welcomed refreshments. All the money spent for this event is the only way this exceptional place is funded. It's not necessarily cheap but it's well spent money no doubt.
    Thank you very much for your kind review! We're delighted you had such a great time with us and the team are really pleased you felt welcomed and enjoyed your evening. We hope you'll come back again!

    Jaw Dropping!
    The trek up the forest path is well worth the trouble once you reach the car park. Greeted by a friendly volunteer we then proceeded into the observatory where Guy gave an amazing talk. I am not exaggerating when I say it was jaw dropping. There was one point when I suddenly became aware that my mouth was wide open in amazement. The photos and graphics made you realise just how insignificant our world and also our own Sun are in the grand scheme of things. It really is mind blowing. Having visited a few years ago I was impressed at how much more is now known since then. Sadly the cloud cover meant that we were unable to star watch, but the staff still managed to give us a great night. Thank you for such a different sort of adventure.
    Hello, thank you very much for your kind review of your visit to us. We really appreciate it! We hope you'll be back again for more astronomical adventures, and I'm sure the team will have even more mind-blowing facts and figure for you by then.

    Superb!
    Superb! We really weren’t expecting to see anything at all as the weather had been rain and fog all weekend, but the the wind kicked in and gave us glimpses of the stars. The whole session was very well planned and very interesting. Staff are highly qualified, engaging, and very helpful. We were delighted with the whole thing. We will be back!

    Fantastic experience, whatever the weather!
    Despite the weather preventing any 'live' observations, the team gave a series of engaging talks that were both well prepared and resourced. We even got to stand on Mars! As a deputy headteacher, I can thoroughly vouch for the quality of content and presentation and noted that all present, children and adults, were both fascinated and entertained by the evening. The four presenters on the evening were both personable and knowledgeable and a real credit to the Observatory. We've enjoyed a varied week in Northumberland, but this was the agreed highlight of both my children and I would definitely return for another session when back in the area.
    Thank you so much for this review! We really appreciate your thoughts and are thrilled that you and your family had such a great time with us. We hope you'll be back for more astronomy action soon!

    Magical star gazing
    Absolutely amazing evening. The staff are so helpful, friendly, and patient. The meteor shower spectacular evening was so well organised, giving us all time to spend with the telescopes, spend time looking at the skies and a much time as we needed watching our for sitting stars. We got to see planets we wanted plus galaxies, constellation, we also got to touch space rocks and learn about the sites. My partner got to learn about astrophotography which was a bonus
    Thank you for your review of your visit to Kielder Observatory. We're thrilled you had such a great night with us and hope you'll come back again!

    Very informative
    Whilst this was a disappointing evening as the clouds covered the sky we had a very interesting, informative time. The members of staff told us in language I could understand all about their work, how many 'stars' were out there etc etc. We had a look through one of the telescopes at a recording of the moon, mars and Saturn. Dan the photographer showed us some of his recordings and photos. The shooting stars were amazing. Brilliant Dan. We then had a talk all about meteors and finally Dan explained what we could see (if it hadn't been cloudy) in the sky, how the sun tracked through the sky and all the constellations - some of which required a significant amount of imagination.
    Thanks for your review! We're really pleased to hear that you had a good time with us and that our team made the best of the evening, even if the weather was not on our side. We hope you'll come and visit us again and we'll keep our fingers crossed for clear skies.

    A dreamy experience...
    I had booked a visit to the Kielder Observatory for their Aurora night with plans of proposing to my girlfriend. Well, I am happy to report that my plan all came together thanks to the wonderful staff who helped me set up one of the observation decks to use as the location to pop the question! Unfortunately, it did happen to be quite a cloudy night so we did not get to see everything I had hoped but my partner and I were thrilled regardless since, soon after I had put the ring on her finger, Saturn came out to show her own rings off! As the skies cleared up towards the end of the event, the staff were happy to let us stay for an extra few minutes and take a closer look at some of the heavenly bodies that were now finally unobstructed. My fiancee and I shared a very special moment here and will most likely be back again, making it our very first tradition as an engaged couple. Overall, I would highly recommend this trip to any families, groups or couples looking to experience the indescribable beauty of a night sky without any pollution.
    Congratulations! How nice of Saturn to show off its rings too! We're so pleased you both had a wonderful night with us and hope you'll come for another visit!

    Amazing experience - and the staff are stars!
    Staying in the local area, we decided to book the 'Introduction to Astronomy' 2 hour session. It surpassed my expectations, we absolutely loved it! The staff were all brilliant - Dan, Ishbel, Adam and Gregoire were all so knowledgeable and their talks were fun and engaging, pitched at a level everyone could understand. The highlight for me was looking at the sun through the huge telescope and just as I was wondering 'how can they see everything through that one hatch in the ceiling?' well I was blown away to find the observatory building actually spins so they can position it to see what they want. Still getting over that!!! We had superb weather for our visit and staying nearby in the 'dark skies' area we were lucky enough to see the constellations and also the Milky Way with the naked eye. I just wish we were there the following week to experience the Northern Lights they captured. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
    Hello Lisa! We're so pleased you had such a great night with us and hope you're not still dizzy from our spinning roof. Our team work hard to make sure our guests have the best experience possible and it sounds like they've done just that. We hope you'll come back and visit us again some time!

    EXCELLENT - Dark Skies - Amazing Venue and Staff
    EXCELLENT. I simply love it here visited again last week for a couple of nights and yet again had an excellent time. The astronomers are extremely knowledgeable and personable who go out of their way to make sure you have a top quality experience no matter the weather. I was luck my first night clear skies, was spectacular being located in a gold tier dark skies area meant the skies were clear and spectacular. The second evening although raining the staff went out of their way to make sure the night still a good one. I am a member of a couple of astronomical societies and also volunteer myself at a different location. I can safely say this is by far my favourite location for dark skies, and the experience you get visiting here. I will most definitely be back this is my favourite venue for stargazing. I cannot recommend enough.
    What a wonderful review to read! Thank you so much for coming to visit us and rating your experience so highly. The whole team work to make sure you have a great night- no matter if the clouds are out or not- so it's great to hear you enjoyed both nights. We'll look forward to seeing you in Kielder again soon!

My partner purchased this especially for the meteor shower, but they were also doing a myths and legends talk (hold that thought). The weather was awful and we didn’t even see a single star. We were placed indoors and then passed from staff member to staff member, given childish tours of apps for your iPad or expensive kit.
It made me feel like I was being shown around a museum. Nothing was engaging. Then finally we sat down for the ‘extra’ event which i won’t mention the price per person was terrible. In short, a masters student showed a group of 8 a powerpoint of victorian sketches of the zodiac. We left feeling absolutely deflated. I am an amateur star gazer and my partner is an astro-physicist!! Would not recommend.

Before you continue let me make it clear I am NOT leaving a low score due to bad weather..I'm not that stupid.

I was really looking forward to an evening looking at stars at the observatory in a dark skies park. The weather tho had other ideas, it was extremely cloudy and rainy. There was very little chance of seeing any sky let alone stars, but we had payed for it so off we went.

Major-major fault of this place is the location of the toilet..

The toilet itself is literally a hole in the ground, waste goes nowhere, never gets changed and it stinks to high heaven, fair enough its on top of a massive hill miles from anywhere, not really an issue - the issue is its location, it is right next to the main room and it stinks this room out. Even wearing a face mask thanks to covid the smell of urine hit me as soon as I walked in the main room and stayed with me for the duration.

There's a separate building, the car parks less than 30 meters away there's obviously literally acres of space all around the building that would have been a better more suitable place for it to go its actual location makes no logical sense at all.

My wife actually used the toilet and she said her eyes were burning and I'm convinced she wasn't just pulling my leg.

The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and tried to keep our spirits up the best they could.. however without the sky's being visible it became apparent fairly quickly that the evening was going to be a waste of time and this is the second reason I was so disappointed because the evening seemed cobbled together from this moment on and let's face it, bad weather must hinder them fairly often so I would have expected more value for money in this instance.

45 minute talk by Dan who actually held my attention for most parts and I found him easy to listen too.

Then off to another hut to begiven a hot drink. 20 mins

Then back to the urine soaked smelly room to look at a few space rocks. 30 mins

Then a look at a telescope and a walk through as to how it works. 20 mins

I can imagine on a clear night the view of the stars up there would be amazing.. one of the best in the UK.

But if its very bad weather just don't bother, staff tried their best but if the star of the show (pun intended) isn't going to show they are fighting a losing battle..

The 45 mins with Dan at the start was decent the rest just felt like filler to justify the fee..

Like I said.. can't blame them for the weather but more to see and do in this instance is needed.

It is quite some time since we visited but I never thought at the time to leave a review as I was so upset with the staff. We had our children with us as they all loved the sky and stars and were looking forward to it, unfortunately the weather was not kind and it was a cloudy evening. The boss started with a talk which turned to be mainly about him, we then went on a tour and the young man thought that during his talk / q&a session that constantly asking a 11 year old questions made himself look clever, it didn’t it made you look like a bully. We left. Wouldn’t recommend a visit to this place to anyone it was very disappointing.

Just had a Stargazing Experience if you count watching slides of space, photos and YouTube videos an experience. It’s basically that in 3 different rooms. I should have realised what I was in for when the first presenter said “later we could open the roof for the big telescope but that requires opening the roof etc, we’ll use the small manual telescopes as they are easy to set up”…. And we even didn’t use them! £60 for 2 people to basically watch a space documentary for 3 hours. Very disappointing! Just watch a space documentary in your own home! Believe me you’ll be so much more satisfied and comfortable.

I brought my 9 years old son for the Young Explorers session to expand his classroom knowledge about subjects of space and astronomy. He enjoyed visiting Kielder Observatory very much and is already looking forward to come back here again.

It is a little bit of travelling involved to get to the Kielder Observatory, but definitely worth it. Located in the Kielder Forrest, near the border between England and Scotland, it is distant enough from lights of bigger agglomerations to easily immerse into the darkness. Though, this will vary from one to another season of the year.

Staff at the Kielder Observatory showed a lot of patience and very positive attitude towards young explorers. All of them are very enthusiastic about subjects related to astronomy and their workplace. Booking in advance is needed, especially for events such as Aurora Nights and other shows for older visitors.

Signposts on local roads make this place almost impossible to miss. Car park next to the observatory is reserved for pre-booked ticket holders only. There is another car park at the bottom of hill, but it is about 1.5 miles away from observatory. Hot drinks and snacks are available from the small gift shop. Warm clothes required since it is quite cold up there.

I am very disappointed with the customer service. In 2020 we had 3 tickets booked which were cancelled because of covid and refunded in the form of vouchers. Because of lockdown and a stressful time at work I forgot about the vouchers and they expired. Then I was gifted 2 other tickets from husband (who was unaware of our 3 vouchers) to one of the observatory events which we attended and enjoyed very much.

I emailed to explain the predicament and that we would like to use the 3 original vouchers to book a new event as my daughter is moving to Canada this year and we won't see her for 3 years, so it will be her last chance to come. Not only have we been told that the observatory won't be flexible in extending the vouchers, but I have now had my emails ignored.

We have paid a total of 125 pounds now to the observatory which is a considerable amount of money for our family. We understand the observatory is a charity but since we have already paid all this money to the charity it seems nonsensical as well as greedy and uncharitable that they will not allow us to book events using prepaid vouchers. Especially considering the extraordinary circumstances of covid we have all struggled through the past 2 years. And considering that the events are the same today and the same price as when we originally booked.

Hi Hazel Sorry that you have missed out on using your transferred vouchers. During the height of the covid19 pandemic we altered our policy to allow guest to use (not necessarily attend) their vouchers with 12 months of them being issued. We treat all of our visitors the same and within the organisation's policy . I can see from the various email exchanges you have had with our team that you understand we cannot honour vouchers that have expired and we appreciate your continued support for Kielder Observatory and the work that we do. We hope you will visit us again in the future, and we look forward to welcoming you back when you do.

We booked this particular event to coincide with the new moon when the sky would be its darkest. However, the weather was not on our side with rain and full cloud cover the whole evening.
Despite the weather, it was still a fantastic evening and I loved how enthusiastic and knowledgeable the staff were.
We first had a talk about our solar system then had a session about Astro photography with a hot chocolate, we then moved onto a session about meteors and then finally onto the observation deck and the telescopes - with the inclement weather we were unable to open the observatory roof but got to look through the lens at a pre-recorded image of Saturn.
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was because of the price, we payed £59 each for the session from 11pm - 2am which I think was slightly over priced for what it was. I think the earlier session which finished just before ours started would have been better value for money for us as novices.

Hello Maria, Thanks so much for your review, and I'm really pleased to hear you enjoyed your evening with us (despite the clouds ruining play). The team do work hard to make sure out guests are engaged and have the opportunity to ask plenty of questions while they're at the observatory. We take on your feedback around the pricing and it is something which is constantly under review, so we hope that in future we can make the experience more worthwhile for you!

Maybe I had unrealistic expectations but I was really disappointed by the experience. We went in June to a Late Night Explorer event. I had imagined the sky lit up with stars, telescopes dotted around which we could use. Unfortunately on the night we went, due to low cloud, nothing could be seen in the sky. Not a thing. Didn't get to touch let alone use a telescope. I appreciate the weather is out of their control but there ought to be a better back up plan in these circumstances. I spent the next few hours in what felt like an A Level physics class lead by an ill prepared supply teacher, which at 11pm on a Saturday night for someone without a science background, was painful. The talk consisted of a lot of "things you cant see tonight." Just when I thought things couldn't be more boring, another couple in the group who had been some years before, engaged with the staff on a trip down memory lane about staff who used to work there. Yawn!

The highlight for me was when my niece came back from the toilet and much to her excitement said "now that's one thing you can see tonight!" and proceeded to tell me about the toilet. How bad must things have been that this was to most fascinating part of our evening?

The tickets for the event weren't cheap. I think when the weather prevents you seeing anything in the sky, there ought to be an option to re-schedule a visit or offer a discount because quite frankly the talk I sat through could have been better delivered watching a You Tube video from the comfort of my home (with a glass or two!)

I was going to give this event one star - I have given an extra star for the toilet as thinking back to that part of the evening, it does make me laugh!

Not the review I thought I would be giving following this event as I was really looking forward to it but it is honest feedback of my experience.

I booked a late night explorer experience for my partner as she has loved all things astronomy for some time now and I have wanted to visit here for a while as well, I booked it three months in advance as my shift patterns are never great, I already knew my luck would run out closer to the time and it would be raining, on the day of the experience it turned worse and was not only raining but foggy too!

I have to say that given the weather the staff could not have put on a better evening, I am aware that they have probably planned for this a lot as the weather in the U.K is rubbish at the best of times however Liam, Ishbel, Guy and Grégoire were all fantastic and very attentive and delivered a fantastic experience that was not only very informative but fun as well.

However I must say that due to it being such a good experience I am now forced to spend more money because they have peaked my interest that much that I now am compelled to learn, study and hopefully capture some of my own images of the night sky.

Special thanks to Liam and Ishbel for answering all of my non experience questions on the night when asking about books and equipment. Will definitely be returning!

Just be careful you may end up spending more money by getting hooked!
