Dark Skies

Just 10% of the UK population can open their curtains to a truly dark sky at night. The Welsh wilderness of the Elan Valley has, after several years hard work, been awarded  International Dark Sky Park status. Here the stars shine bright providing a dazzling backdrop for the abundance of nocturnal wildlife across our Estate.

There are a number of special events held throughout the year where you can learn about the constellations in the company of experts and enthusiasts. Great for youngsters, photographers and all of us who thrill to the natural wonder of our world.

Have a look at our What's On page to find out more about our events.
