Walking in the Brecon Beacons National Park

Walk this way. Why wouldn’t you? It’s what we do in the Brecon Beacons National Park Our green – and very fresh – landscapes are renowned for their big, open spaces. There are big skies too – and Dark Skies for night-time strolls into star trek territory.

Our walking comes with that boundless, let’s go, let-off-the-leash Beacony feeling you only get in this part of the world. The variety is world-class too. Go up, up and away into our high country, carved by ice millennia ago. Or explore deep, wooded gorges where rivers are still shaping limestone rocks as they tumble down spectacular waterfalls.
 
We have lakes and forests too, beauty spots and secret places. And trails that suit everyone, from serious outdoor enthusiasts to families out for a Sunday afternoon walk in the park.
 
On top of it all, we’re also Wales’ first Geopark and one of only seven Dark Sky Reserves in the world – infinite spaces, then, but closer than you may think.
