Some areas of the county are some of the darkest in the country, making it an ideal location for star gazing visitors. Durham has 12 Dark Sky Discovery Sites making it one of the best places in the country for star gazing. Astro tourism not only helps to support the rural economy, it also encourages visits during off peak times.
Our helpful toolkit will provide you with all the information you will need to expand your business to the astro tourism market.
We have developed a charter mark to recognise businesses that support dark sky tourism. Passing the self-assessment will allow you to use the Dark Sky Friendly Durham logo on your promotional material and your busineses will be highlited on the dark skies pages of our visitor facing website.
