About Brecon Beacons National Park

Many visitors come to the Brecon Beacons National Park to take on the challenge of scaling the summit of Pen y Fan, the park’s highest peak at 886m; others walk all 95 miles of the Beacons Way, an eight-day journey through mountains and valleys, as well as the peaceful Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and the dramatic ruins of Llanthony Abbey and Carreg Cennen Castle. If all 95 miles is a bit much, go at your own pace and reward yourself with a well-earned pub lunch or pint on the way.

Brecon Beacons’s waterfalls are also a true magnet for walkers, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts alike, with Waterfall Country near the village of Pontneddfechan the best place to see the rivers cascade their way to the Talybont Reservoir at Blaen-y-Glyn. Or you could seek out Henrhyd Falls near Coelbren, the highest of them all. Or if you’re looking for a less strenuous way to while away a weekend, the Brecon Beacons is home to some of the best known festivals in the country from the huge book love-in at Hay Festival every May to the Abergavenny Food Festival in September, which features celebrity chefs and attracts foody fans from all over.
