Starry 'Knights' at Langley Castle

A truely stellar collision of history and the stars. Our beautiful Castle lies beneath the world renowned Northumbrian dark skies. This out of this world experience will combine fine food and luxurious accommodation with a visit to the world famous Kielder Observatory where you will enjoy an evening all about the stars.

The Secret Lives of Stars

Tuesday 16th November 2021

Wherever we are in the world, when we gaze up at our night sky we can see that the universe is filled with tiny little lights of varying brightness from horizon to horizon.

But what are these things we call stars and what is their purpose?

Taking you on a journey around our unique observatory, you will discover ways in which we view our universe, uncover the mysteries of light and how it has helped shape our understanding of the universe.

On clear nights there will be a focus on using our high-powered, large aperture robotic telescopes housed inside their turrets as well as smaller manual telescopes under a blanket of stars on the observation deck.  A team of expert astronomers will be on hand to navigate you around the night sky to objects of interest such as the Moon, Double Stars, Clusters, Planets, Galaxies and Nebulae depending on the lunar calendar.

On nights when observation isn't possible, you will look at the ways ancient astronomers navigated and developed meaning behind what they saw in the heavens.  You will be taken on a virtual tour of our skies, learning constellations and what they mean to us as observers.  You will also be able to see and touch fragments of rock fallen to earth, frozen in time from the very origins of our solar system.

The package includes:

  • 1 Night Accommodation in a CastleView Room
  • 3-Course meal with coffee at Langley Castle
  • Travel to and from the observatory in a luxury coach.
  • Entry into the observatory
  • Cheeseboard and a snifter upon your return to Langley
  • Full Northumbrian Breakfast
  • Battlement Tour
