Brecon is situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Powys, Mid Wales. Brecon is a small market town that many pass by when travelling on the A470 between North and South Wales. However, it is a lovely little town and is well worth exploring. Visit the cathedral on the top of the hill or stroll the delightful Georgian streets. The Brecon Beacons are just a short drive, or walk away.
We, that is my wife Eira Wyn and I, chose to break our journey from Cardiff to North Wales by having a ten minute stop in Brecon. This became two hours and we will definitely visit again, next time staying for a few nights.
