Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced astronomer you are guaranteed a warm welcome at this friendly starcamp.

You're welcome even if you do not have a telescope -- there will be no shortage of astronomers only too pleased to share their views of the heavens. Great for those with an interest in Astronomy and a wonderful break away from the city lights -- and there's a pub close by too!
