SNOWDONIA has been named as one of the UKs best stargazing spot for campers with 137 sites nearby

It was ranked at one of the top five places in the UK to visit to see the Perseid meteor showers in August.

Annual meteor showers peak on August 13th and last until the 23rd, and research from leading motorhome and campervan rental company Camptoo into the peak stargazing hours across the UK for campers provides a list of the best places to view the showers in the coming weeks.

The national park around Wales’ largest mountain has 137 different campsites sites to choose from for travellers.

However, as well as being a hugely popular hiking and tourist destination, Snowdonia will also offer a great place to take in the meteor showers this week.

Between 3:15am - 4:21am and 10:18pm - 11:23pm there will be two hours and 11 minutes of twilight time in which to perfectly view the night sky, making it a hugely popular area to visit.

Camptoo offer the UK’s largest peer-to-peer motorhome and campervan rental selection direct from vehicle owners in the UK, with plenty of selection for people travelling up and down the country to enjoy Staycations and pursue the UK’s amazing landscapes and natural environment including the Perseid meteor showers.

The Perseid showers will not be the last chance to see meteors in the UK this year, with the Draconid (8-9) and Orionid (21-22) meteor showers due to peak in October at these same sites.
