Durlston Country Park & National Nature Reserve

Durlston County Park & National Nature Reserve is located at the southeastern tip of Dorset County, United Kingdom. The 320-acre park is part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and includes a castle and observatory. The Astronomy Centre at Durlston has a 14-inch telescope under the dome. Park rangers and members of the Wessex Astronomical Society hold public talks, lectures and observing events. The dark sky over the English Channel makes Durlston County Park a great place to view star clusters, galaxies and more.
