WEST MIDLANDS 2-HOUR STARGAZING EXPERIENCE
Experience an adventure among the stars with our 2-hour stargazing experience in the West Midlands. We’ll meet you at your choice of stargazing location – either the Clent Hills near Stourbridge or Cannock Chase near Brocton for a thrilling journey across the night sky. Your private stargazing experience will likely start with a laser-guided tour of the stars and constellations that we can see from the West Midlands. We’ll point out constellations you might already be familiar with, and those you perhaps won’t have seen before. Our experienced astronomer will then whisk you off on a grand tour of the heavens through a telescope. Along the way you’ll get to see star systems, star clusters, nebulae and distant galaxies far beyond our own, and we’ll give you the background story to each view. If the moon and / or planets are visible then we’ll go visit them too with the telescope.
In the 2-hour West Midlands stargazing experience gift box you get:
- 2-hour stargazing experience gift voucher for the West Midlands valid for 2 years from month of issue

Our stargazing nights are run as private tours for individuals, couples, families and small groups. They make for a fantastic birthday or Christmas present. It’s great for children too from age 7 upwards. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Voucher recipient may have up to 15 friends and family members share in the experience at no extra charge.
When can the voucher be used?
There’s always lots to see in the night sky no matter what time of year you choose tho stargaze. We can run your stargazing experience on a week night or weekend night anytime of the year, except 24-31 December and subject to our astronomer’s availability. Weekend nights are popular so do get booked up in advance. If you’d like to see the moon through a telescope, or one or two planets then we recommend that the voucher recipient contact us to ask for best viewing dates.
What if it is cloudy or raining?
Naturally cloud and rain is always a threat. When booking the stargazing experience we recommend that you choose 2 or 3 nights initially on which you’d be happy for us to run the experience for you. If it is cloudy / raining on all selected nights then we’ll simply roll the experience forward to an alternative date that works. We can keep rolling the experience forward until we are able to run the stargazing for you.
