Holidays in Brecon

The Welsh name for Brecon is Aberhonddu, referring to its location at the mouth (aber) of the River Honddu where it joins the mighty River Usk. No surprise then, that fishing is a favourite outdoor activity, and it is also common to see guided groups of canoeists setting off from under the Brecon Promenade. Other nearby places to enjoy being on or beside the water are Llangorse Lake, Gilwern and the River Wye.

Pen-y-Fan's peak is the highest point in South Wales and one of the most iconic sights in the Brecon Beacons. Several paths lead to the summit with the shortest one being the 3km route from the car park by the Storey Arms. Be warned that parking is limited, with car parks and roads monitored seven days a week. The shortest route to the peak is the most popular, and it can get jam-packed on weekends and during the summer. If you have the legs for it, try the circular route over Corn Du to Pen-y-Fan as the views are amazing.

The Brecon Beacons has no shortage of beautiful climbs with nearby alternatives to Pen-y-Fan including Fan y Big, The Gap and Tor y Foel. Slightly further away but still within half an hour’s drive are the Black Mountains, the Sugarloaf, Mynydd Llangatwg, and Table Mountain.

Brecon is close to beautiful waterfalls, with Forest Fawr having some of the most impressive, including Sgwd-y-Eira (Snow Waterfall) where a path takes walkers behind the curtain of water. Part of the Brecon Beacons is a Night Sky Reserve. The visitor centre near Brecon hosts stargazing events all year round.

The mountains and valleys around Brecon are a magnet for mountain bikers, and the national park is recognised as being one of the UK’s leading mountain bike venues. There are routes to suit every discipline and ability, including excellent downhill trails (and uplift) at Bike Park Wales.

If the weather is poor, then head underground to the Dan yr Ogof show caves (open April to October) or to Big Pit in Blaenavon in the south of the national park which has free entry and is open all year round.

Wales is a nation rich with myth and legend. Forest Fawr UNESCO Global Park is the origin of some of the most famous, including that the Carboniferous Limestone in the park has multiple entrances to Annwn, a Welsh underworld featuring prominently in the Mabinogion stories. Welsh legend claims that King Arthur and his knights are held in a magical sleep in Craig y Ddinas, while Cwm Twrch (Valley of the Boar) is named after the mythical boar Arthur killed with the enormous Carreg Fryn Fras stone. Dragon’s Back at Pengenfford is so-called because, from a distance, the peaks and saddles look like the ridges of a sleeping dragon.

Brecon has been a retail and business hub since the Roman time and the Market town remains popular with both locals and visitors. In addition to a wide choice of places to eat, drink and shop, Brecon attractions include the Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery, Brecon Cathedral, and the Welsh Guards Regimental Museum.

Nearby, places to see include the pretty village of Crickhowell, the market town of Abergavenny, and the Victorian grandeur of Llandrindod Wells. Brecon’s castle remains impressive many centuries after its construction, as does White Castle, the first castle built by Edward I in Wales which, together with Grosmont and Skenfrith castles, was vital in protecting the delicate balance of the Welsh border.

Brecon is a perennial favourite for visitors of all ages, so why not make it the destination for your next holiday.
