You'll always find a warm welcome at the National Park Visitor Centre, often referred to locally as the Mountain Centre.  A team of friendly and knowledgeable Information Officers are on hand 364 days a year to help you make the most of your visit to the National Park.  

You can fuel yourself for the day at the Tea Rooms which offer full breakfast, lunch and snack menus, along with a great range of tempting cakes and desserts.  The Tea Rooms are licensed, so you can also relax and unwind afer a rewarding day in the hills with a local beer or wine.  There is a full range of teas, coffees and soft drinks too, to quench that well earnt thirst.


The shop is also well worth a visit.  It stocks those all important maps and guides, along with a number of essential items that will help make your day go smoothly.

The Centre stocks a range of gifts and souvenirs, many of which are made by local arts and crafts producers from within the National Park.  It is also famous for its range of books on local history and culture, for those who want to know more about what makes the Brecon Beacons such a special place.

There is an informative exhibition area as well which will help you to understand more about the National Park and the Geopark. We also have an outdoor play area with a fabulous view of Pen Y Fan.
