The Brecon Beacons National Park became an International Dark Sky Reserve in 2012. This accreditation is testament to the quality of the region's dark skies. A number of Dark Sky Discovery Sites make stargazing readily accessible. The Milky Way is easily seen crossing the skies on moonless nights. Local accommodation providers offer plenty of "stay-and-gaze" options. The scenic landscapes make for amazing astrophotography opportunities.
