12 things not to miss

You could spend a lifetime in the Brecon Beacons National Park and not see all there is to see.

But if you’re only here for a short visit, there are a number of things you really should squeeze in before you leave.

To help you choose, we’ve selected some favourites. Places which tell the story of our magnificent industrial heritage and landscapes of extraordinary natural beauty. Romantic ruins, mysterious caves and our glorious heavens. And finally, to prove we know how to throw a great party, a couple of festivals that draw people from far and wide.

It wasn’t easy whittling our list of Brecon Beacons highlights down to just 12. If there’s a place, attraction or event you think we should have included, do let us know!
