South Wales Travel Guide


The historic market town of Brecon is known for its Georgian buildings, narrow passageways, and pleasant riverside walks. It's also the gateway to Brecon Beacons National Park. The town is particularly appealing on Tuesday and Friday, which are market days. You may want to purchase a hand-carved wooden "love spoon" similar to those on display in the Brecknock Museum.
