360 degrees – of view!

And so many ways to experience the
glorious landscape of the National Park.
Make Crickhowell your starting – and
finishing point and you can’t go wrong.
Whether it's by car, on a bike, a pony, in a
canoe, glider or on foot!

Walkers can give their boots a real workout
– or just break them in with a hike to suit all
abilities and one that’s high on scenic value!
From Crickhowell, a day’s walk could see you
climbing Sugar Loaf or Table Mountain,
bagging one of the Peaks (Pen Cerrig-Calch)
- or strolling along the Mon & Brec Canal.
Lock 64 is pretty nice for a picnic and
there’s even a pub around the corner!

You could also discover the Park’s amazing
landscape by venturing underground. Either by exploring the miles and miles of caves and caverns, or by visiting the National
Showcaves at Dan yr Ogof. Our favourite underground experience though is descending Big Pit - one of Wales’ award winning museums.


Located a short drive over the mountain,
Big Pit and the nearby Ironworks form part
of the World Heritage landscape at
Blaenavon and are not to be missed!

For gentler pursuits, browsing around the shops in Crickhowell is simply, a great pleasure. You could be disappointed if you are looking for the likes of M & S and Tesco! But we’re certain you’ll be delighted at the range of gifts, service and quality of
products in stores like Nicholls, Webbs and

The market town of Brecon is only 13 miles
to the west and – don’t miss the colour and
excitement of market day (Tuesday) in
Abergavenny - 6 miles to the east of Crickhowell. These two towns are also
famous for their festivals. Jazz lovers can head to Brecon in August and foodies to
Abergavenny in September.

Wherever you are roaming, rambling or cycling in the Brecon Beacons, keep an eye on the skies - you’ll be certain to spot a
Red Kite or two!


How will you be exploring
the stunning landscape
of the Brecon Beacons?
