Dark Sky Location

Here are a few Dark Sky locations.

Place Fell Wild Camp

Place Fell, Due to the undulating land there are quite a few sheltered hollows to get out of the wind. Excellent view Eastwards for sunrise and the Westwards one is not too bad either!

Glyder Fach

This was my first visit to The Glyders & wasn’t really expecting much in terms of dark skies but boy was i wrong!

Mynydd Mawr Aberdaron

One of the darkest spots in Wales! You’ll be far enough from any Street lighting here and you can also park nearby.

Kielder Water and Forest Park Dark Sky Preserve

Kielder Water boasts the darkest skies in England and is a recognised International Dark Sky Preserve. Post your images of this site, or even better, add your own locations in Kielder Water and Forest Park.

Aberdesach Beach

A very convenient spot for a quick bit of sky watching seawards. Few houses and lights nearby, but otherwise not too bad.

Cwm Idwal

Cwm Idwal is one of the more easily reached landmarks in Snowdonia, and despite this, it can still feel wild. Just ensure that you make it there early or in the evening.  It’s also a great dark sky location.
