Things to do in Brecon, Powys

Historic Brecon is the bustling centre of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Narrow compact streets, Georgian facades and the restored canal basin tell tales of times gone by. For culture, seek out the 12th century Cathedral, South Wales Borderers Military Museum, and Brecknock Museum and Art Gallery. Brecon offers many places to eat and stay - the monthly Brecknock Farmers Market is the biggest in the area.

Specialist independent retailers offer unique and affordable products with a warm and friendly service. Local organic and specialist foods are in abundance and always worth seeking out.

More active visitors will enjoy the outdoor shops, bike hire and the Taff Trail cycle path from Brecon. With a professional theatre and independent cinema, pubs and restaurants and a leisure centre for rainy days, there's always something to do in this wonderful market town.
