Best stargazing sites in Pembrokeshire

People stargazing

Swap a cosy night in for an evening under the stars at Pembrokeshire's Dark Sky Discovery Sites.

Pembrokeshire's home to a network of Dark Sky Discovery Sites; a nationally-recognised designation for top stargazing spots across the UK.

We've been working with Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority to have our special places recognised by the DSD as great and accessible spots to enjoy clear views of the night sky. Our coast and countryside has low light pollution, so after-dark it's possible to see the Milky Way with the naked eye.

You don't need to be an astronomer to admire the night sky, just wrap up warm and look up! Have a peek at our stargazing for beginners guide to get started.
