The Brecon Beacons National Park is one of 15 national parks in the UK.
Originally created in 1957, it includes the highest mountains in southern Britain with Pen Y Fan being the highest peak.
With a wonderful diverse landscape it offers walkers, cyclists, canoeists, cavers and sightseers endless possibilities.
The park can be split into 4 distinctive areas: 1. The Black Mountains in the east; 2. The Brecon Beacons in the centre; 3. Fforest Fawr/The Black Mountain in the west; 4. The Waterfalls District in the south.
The western half of the National Park gained European and Global Geopark status in 2005.
In 2013, the national park gained a prestigious accolade by becoming a Dark Sky Reserve,
which means we have great skies for star gazing. There are only 4 reserves in the
world that have this accolade.
