Things to do this Week in the Brecon Beacons

There are lots of things to enjoy this last week of July here in the Brecon Beacons…

  • 1. Wild Wednesday on the Sugar Loaf

    Join our rangers on the Sugar Loaf and St Mary’s Vale this summer for a wild family adventure and discover a variety of activities that’s part of the National Trust’s 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ campaign. There’ll be plenty of your favourite activities, including building a den and damming a stream plus some new ones along the way, a perfect opportunity to get the whole family active and closer to nature. Please meet at the lower Llanwenarth car park (SO 271165). This will be signposted.

    Don’t forget your waterproof jacket, wellies and bring a picnic. This event is not suitable for buggies/wheelchairs due to the rough ground and steeper inclines into St Mary’s Vale which is often muddy.
