A new video showcasing the spectacular beauty of the Welsh town of Abergavenny has been launched this week, with the aim of helping to attract new visitors to the area.
The video is a celebration of all that makes Abergavenny unique. The footage, taken using the latest aerial drone technology, offers a unique, never before seen view of Abergavenny – capturing the exciting hustle and bustle of one of its signature cultural events, The Abergavenny Food Festival, as well as providing a glimpse into the stunning landscape that surrounds the town.
Andrew Williams, Sustainable Tourism Officer, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority said: “This video offers potential visitors a chance to catch a glimpse of what Abergavenny and the surrounding area has to offer, including stunning countryside to walk and cycle in, a welcoming town full of independent shops and an array of year round festivals and events. The video will be a key promotional tool for the town to use to promote itself and help put the town on the map.”
Abergavenny is a versatile, surprising and beautiful town. Visitors come to Abergavenny to eat, to walk, to shop, to ride and to get away from the hustle and bustle of cities. Against a stunning backdrop of rolling hills that lift and dip, this traditional bustling market town, long considered to be a gateway to Wales and to the Brecon Beacons National Park, boasts an internationally renowned food festival and a rich history as well as being a fun day out.
The town attracts a wide range of visitors – from foodies to families and, with a welcoming population of just over 14,000, visitors are greeted by the wonderful Abergavenny hospitality and a town that is more than pleased to accommodate.
Abergavenny has great connections by road, rail and bus. Despite the area’s amazing rural location, it’s just one hour from Bristol, Cardiff and Swansea and less than three hours from London along the M4. The town is well connected, with frequent train and bus services from Newport and Cardiff, Hereford, Shrewsbury and Manchester to the north.
