Is your Business Dark Skies Friendly?

Dark Skies Friendly businesses benefit from enhanced promotion 

We'd like to celebrate and promote businesses who meet or exceed a set of requirements based on facilities, services and information.  The aim is to ensure that visitors can easily access information specifically relating to Dark Skies, highlighting businesses that offer facilities to meet the needs of dark sky enthusiasts.

If you offer the right facilities, services and information, you can sign up to the Dark Skies Friendly scheme free. Once accepted, you'll get the Dark Skies Friendly logo to use on your website/ social media and be included on the interactive map on the North York Moors National Park website with a link to your website.  ​​

If you have any questions, please email Phoebe -
