Lyrid meteor shower - April 22nd (Cardiff)

Just as an idea...
I'm going with a friend next Tuesday night to try and see this meteor shower (once a year) somewhere with clear views and away from the city lights.

"This month's Lyrid meteor shower peaks on the night of April 22 and the morning of April 23," says Jane Houston Jones of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "But you'll spot some Lyrids any night between the 16th and the 25th. The peak rate is expected to be 15 to 20 meteors per hour."

I know, it's late it's cold and there's work the next day, but it's an event that only takes place twice a year (along with the Perseid meteor shower in August).
I don't know exactly the place or even if I'm going to be able to drive.
I'll just leave it here and see what you think ;)
