Brecon Beacons National Park



Youngest National Park
At less than 60 years old, the Brecon Beacons is the youngest National Park in Wales but like the oldest, Snowdonia, it contains landscapes that were shaped in the Ice Age and moulded by human activity.
 
Size
Covering 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons National Park straddles southern Powys and northern Monmouthshire, from west to east.
 
Scene
Grassy mountains, wooded valleys, caves, reservoirs and the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal make this a superb region to explore on foot or by mountain bike, while one-of-a-kind market towns such as Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye add oodles of character.
 
Dark Sky Reserve
If you’re in Brecon Beacons National Park on a clear, moonless night, make sure you look up. In 2013, the entire park was designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first in Wales, in recognition of its low light pollution and superb stargazing conditions.
