The Brecon Beacons offer a spectacular landscape rich in natural beauty. Free from light and noise pollution it's the perfect respite from the chaos of modern life. Whether you're seeking challenging walks, wide open spaces or secluded waterfalls, the Brecon Beacons provides the best of them all.
Pen y Fan, the highest point in southern Britain, stands proudly flanked by Corn Du and Cribyn. From Fan y Big looking west towards the Beacons you can get the most stunning views in the whole area. You can also be sure to miss the crowds on this less-visited peak.
Nearby Cwm Sere, Cwm Oergwm and Cwm Cynwyn are beautiful and serenely quiet glaciated valleys nestled at the feet of the central Beacons. The terrain is much less challenging but the views are equally impressive.
For a gentler amble, head to the upper Tarell Valley, which runs from Libanus to the Storey Arms. There are plenty of meandering walks through ancient woodland, where you can enjoy views of Craig Cerrig Gleisiad, Fan Frynach and the central Beacons.
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
