Where to walk Abergavenny

Abergavenny provides an ideal base for exploring the Brecon Beacons on foot. A short walk from the town centre takes you into the countryside, longer walks could take you to the top of one of several mountains overlooking Abergavenny. The three main peaks also have car parks closer to the summits for those who prefer a shorter climb.

The Blorenge (561 m) offers dizzying views over the town of Abergavenny, whilst the Sugarloaf (the highest of the three peaks at 596m) provides views across unspoiled parts of the local countryside. The Skirrid (486m high) has a steep initial climb, which then breaks out onto a long ridgeway which ends by the ruins of an old chapel at the highest point.
