Talgarth Fifth Walking Festival

Friday 28th April – Monday 1st May 2017

The ancient market town of Talgarth is an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot, particularly as it forms the “Gateway to the Black Mountains”. We offer visitors a taste of our town and the wonderful walking opportunities we have on our doorstep. We hope that you thoroughly enjoy your experience with us and return to our town in the near future. We look forward to seeing you at the Festival in May!
The fifth programme is now available online, browse through our walks.
You can book tickets online or by phone on 07719 876020 or 07943 616453 or download the booking form and post it to us.Image result for talgarth walking festival
