Take your family on a free adventure using a TrawsCymru bus this weekend. All of the TrawsCymru buses including the T4 which departs Cardiff and heads up the A470 to Brecon into the Brecon Beacons every 2 hours. Plan your journey here
There is plenty to do and enjoy in the Brecon Beacons without your car, so it’s the perfect excuse to leave the car at home and explore our National Park by bus. Not only is it the environmentally friendly option, but it’s also a great way to meet other walkers and local residents whilst taking in all the beautiful landscapes.
Enjoy a walk up the Great Pen y Fan
This walk is perfect for the T4 route as there is a bus stop right at the bottom of the mountain. Find out more about the walk here.
Family Walks by bus
The booklet tells you everything you need to know about 10 walks that the whole family can enjoy. Leave the car, all the walks begin and end at easily accessible bus stops.
