Stargazing in North Wales

North Wales is home to Snowdonia International Dark Sky Reserve and is consistently voted one of the most beautiful regions in the world. The whole area is a dark sky delight, with aurora sometimes visible from Penmon on the Isle of Anglesey and fabulous stargazing along the Llŷn Peninsula.
