The Brecon Beacons named worlds top stargazing spot by Rough Guides

The Brecon Beacons have been named the top place to go stargazing by Rough Guides – keep reading to find out more about where to go stargazing in our National Park.


On a clear night in the Brecon Beacons, you can see the Milky Way, major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers. It’s enough to make anyone starry eyed.

Our Park has some of the highest quality dark skies in the whole of the UK, making it the perfect destination for stargazers.

We think that this is something worth shouting about, so we teamed up with the Brecon Beacons Park Society to apply to the International Dark Sky Association to make our entire National Park an International Dark Sky Reserve. In 2012, we became just the fifth destination in the world (and the first in Wales) to be accredited.

Through this highly prestigious status, we hope to preserve our magical night skies for future generations and help reduce carbon dioxide emissions in our Park. We also intend to help protect a whole host of nocturnal creatures that need dark nights to forage, hunt and migrate.
