At Astronomy Adventures we do more than just bring our telescopes! Our Stargazing Experience Nights give you an opportunity to explore the Universe through a large telescope with an experienced astronomer as your guide. Whether from the convenience of your back garden or from one of the UK’s top stargazing locations we will take you out on an exciting and memorable journey amongst the stars.
Our stargazing experience nights are run by astronomer Andy Lawes FRAS (with enhanced DBS) and have more than 40 years experience observing the night sky. If you’d like a private star party in your back garden, a stargazing tour for your birthday, Christmas or wedding guests, or a whirlwind visit to some of the best sights in the night sky for a special event or school stargazing experience, Andy is your Astronomer for Hire!
