The Brecon Beacons is a mountain range in South Wales. The name refers to the range of Old Red Sandstone peaks which lie to the south of Brecon. Sometimes referred to as “the central Beacons” they include South Wales’ highest mountain, Pen y Fan. Fresh air, wide open spaces, a creative atmosphere and loads to entertain you, whatever the weather – this is the Brecon Beacons National Park which contains some of the finest walking country in Europe.
Explore museums, market towns and canalside villages. Relax beside the lakes and waterfalls, or discover hidden crags and vast caves. There’s plenty to enjoy after dark, too, from sparkling festivals, full of authentic Welsh flavour, to famously clear, starry skies. On a clear night in the Brecon Beacons, you can see the Milky Way, major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers. It’s enough to make anyone starry-eyed.
