From Iain Todd of Sky at Night Magazine;

In 2015 Snowdonia was announced as the 10th International Dark Sky Reserve.

While the pristine dark skies above Snowdonia National Park are certainly helped by a local dedication to preserving darkness in the area, they are ensured by the fact that north Wales is naturally one of the darkest places in Britain.

The park recommends five particular places of interest to stargazers looking for places to observe in the region: Llyn y Dywarchen; Llyn Geirionydd; Llynnau Cregennen; Bwlch y Groes and T? Cipar.

Although in reality any astronomers in north Wales will be spoilt for choice.
