Towns and villages in the Brecon Beacons National Park
- St Mary's Church in The Bulwark, Brecon
Our National Park is ringed with characterful market towns while, further inside our Park, the River Usk, the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and the shores of Llangorse Lake are dotted with pleasant country villages and sleepy hamlets.
Together, our towns and villages reflect our history and heritage as a mining, quarrying and farming region and our role as custodians of a beautiful region of hills, valleys, lakes and waterways.
Some are notable historic centres with classic Welsh architecture, interesting museums and ancient churches.
In our main towns, Abergavenny, Brecon, Crickhowell, Hay-on-Wye, Llandovery and Talgarth, there's always something going on.
Our towns and villages also offer great places to stay, eat, shop, fix up outdoor activities and chat about things to see and do.
