There are places to visit where you can encounter animals at adventure farms and stroll around country parks indulge in great local produce.

People have lived and worked in the Brecon Beacons for nearly 8000 years. With each passing century, different communities have left their mark on the landscape. Together, our monuments, settlements, churches, castles, canals, industrial sites and museums speak of times gone by.


Whether you prefer strolling along to take in the gems you pass or energetically stepping up a slope to get your heart pounding, you’re guaranteed to find a walk to suit your mood and needs within easy distance of your base here in the Brecon Beacons.

Little can match the enjoyment of ambling along a canal towpath or riverside path, exploring a wildflower carpeted wood, being rewarded with breathtaking views from the top of one of our mountains or being dazzled by our star bedecked dark skies. Search the graded walks across the National Park via the map to find a walk which is right for you now.


The Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is often voted Britain's prettiest canal. Much of it runs through the Brecon Beacons National Park and follows the line of the lovely, wooded Usk Valley. Brecon Basin is a great place to start your journey, with lovely walks along the canal.

If you love your culture, look out for the poetry trail by Theatr Brycheiniog. There are 10 specially commissioned poems to celebrate the Cultural Olympiad of 2012 written by well-known Welsh poets, five in Welsh and five in English.


The Regimental Museum of The Royal Welsh tells the long and proud story of the Royal Welsh, Wales’ infantry regiment. The Royal Welsh was formed in 2006 when The Royal Regiment of Wales merged with the Royal Welch Fusiliers, but our regimental history has a much greater reach than this date suggests. The earliest units associated with the Royal Welsh were formed in 1689, and having seen action in virtually every major British conflict since the seventeenth century, the Regiment can easily lay claim to having one of the finest histories in the British Army.    


The Brecon Beacons has some of the very best terrain in Wales for mountain biking. Whatever type of riding you're looking for – fast descents, skills sessions or gentle
off-road trails – you'll find a location to suit. Just don’t forget to take in the breathtaking scenery. For mountain bike training, instruction or to join a group ride or event, get in touch with the activity companies in the Park.

A little planning and common sense will help ensure that your mountain biking experience is trouble-free.
