If you have 3 hours in Brecon…
Tourist Information Centre (TIC) Guidebooks, maps, gifts and very knowledgeable staff.
Cathedral & Heritage Centre
Doctor Who filming location, regimental colours from Rourke’s Drift and largest cresset stone (a medieval light) in Britain – just some of its many claims to fame.Remains of the 11th century castle now form part of a hotel.
During the 19th century limestone was often transported by water and tramroad to canalside limekilns where it was burned to produce lime for use as a fertiliser and a building material. Nearby is a wooden sculpture – a reminder of Brecon’s industrial past.
Regimental Museum of The Royal Welsh
Focal point is the Zulu War exhibition telling the story of Rourke’s Drift.
If you have 5 or more hours in Brecon…
And if you fancy stopping the night…
Once passing one of the best gastro-pubs in Wales, it would be a shame not to stop by for a relaxing dinner followed by a soundless sleep in peaceful Maes-Y-Berllan which is only a mile away. Sleeps 6.
3. BRONLLYS- Beacons Edge
This bungalow is set conveniently between Brecon and Hay-on-Wye – perfect for a quiet base to hop from town to town. Sleeps 4.
4. TALGARTH – Little Donkey
This cottage is quite special as it’s is named after the rescue donkeys kept in a nearby field! The centre of Talgarth is just a few minutes walk to relax before you continue your journey by bus, or maybe you won’t be able to resist staying a few days. Sleeps 2.
5. ERWOOD – Gromain Lodge
This old fishing lodge is a stunning location en route with flowers around every corner and a great spot for birdwatching too. If you’re bored of traveling by bus you could even canoe to Hay-on-Wye! Sleeps 10.
