There's a thriving creative community in and around the Brecon Beacons National Park, making this a superb region to shop for handmade gifts or art inspired by the countryside.
All our towns have something different to offer. Brecon and Crickhowell have a good mixture of outdoor shops and boutiques, while Abergavenny is fantastic for food.
The quirky, arty town of Hay-on-Wye is world famous for bookshops and has much more besides. Llandeilo, a characterful town with some fine Georgian and Victorian buildings, is excellent for antiques.
In our villages and rural areas, you'll find general stores and farm shops stuffed with Welsh specialities and seasonal produce, while our National Park visitor centres and tourist information offices are good places to pick up local maps and guides.
