If you enjoy walking, then you’ll love the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Stroll through sleepy valleys, wander alongside sparkling lakes and reservoirs or hike across some of the most spectacular scenery in southern Britain.
Some ideas on where to walk within the National Park and Geopark.
AIRCRAFT CRASH SITES
A newly extended version of the original booklet, containing details of an additional ten crash sites has now been produced in partnership with the Royal Air Force Association (RAFA) and is available to purchase through local information centres or find out more online. The money raised for the RAF Association by the sale of this booklet will go to the Battle of Britain Wings Appeal. This appeal has been raising money since the end of World War 2 in order to provide help, friendship and support to those serving and former members of the Royal Air Force and the Air Forces of the Commonwealth, their spouses and dependants of those who died whilst serving.
Why not get a copy of the Wildlife Walks booklet with 12 wonderful nature reserves to visit. Walks are less than 2 hours and many less than an hour so if you have young ones or don’t fancy a hike these are the places to go.
