Dark Sky Wales - Best Price Tickets
More people than ever are now living in cities. There are certainly wonderful aspects to this, don’t get us wrong, but it comes with sacrifices – one of those being the stars.
Allan and Martin, owners of Dark Sky Wales, know this more than most. As keen astronomers, they seek out the least light-polluted areas to look up at the astonishing beauty of the night sky.
Now, they’re offering that same chance to you. If you’ve been lucky enough to go camping far away from populated areas, then you’ll understand just how breathtaking the night sky can be.
And if you don’t, you deserve to.
Dark Sky Wales has a number of incredible experiences you can pick from. Whether you’re up for a one-to-one lesson on how to get the most out of your telescope, or fancy a weekend getaway stargazing with a group of friends and family – they've got you covered.
With both Allan and Martin’s expert knowledge of astronomy, they’ll always be on hand to leave you fascinated with stories, both factual and mythological, about the stars and sky above.
There are not many sights that can compare to a clear night sky. Stars stretch across the vast darkness in a seemingly endless chasm of shimmering and still pinpricks.
What will you see?
But there’s more to stargazing than just the stars. Whichever experience you choose, your astronomer will be on hand to show you the rarer sights of the sky.
From constellations to nebulas, the universe is filled with more complex and fascinating things than you could ever imagine.
Once you start down the path of astronomy, the world starts to feel a lot smaller and the universe a whole lot bigger.
But in every corner of it, there’s something utterly beautiful lying there. When you take your first look through a telescope at a planet in our solar system, or at a galaxy far, far away – it’s hard not to be hooked.
Whether you’re bringing the family along or fancy spending a weekend out under the stars with your loved one, take a look at all the experiences they offer.
It’s likely a few will end up in your calendar.
