Brecon BeaconsIt's all about the Great Outdoors in the Brecon Beacons National Park, 520 square miles of mountain ranges, caves, lakes, waterfalls and rivers in a glorious part of South Wales. Close to Cardiff, 100 miles from Birmingham, and 3 hours from London, it's also one of the most accessible national parks for many people in the UK – but even so, you'll always be able to find your own piece of heaven. The Beacons Way lets you see the whole of the National Park on a strenuous 95-mile walking route across the park, or there's fantastic mountain-biking, canoeing on the River Wye, wildlife-watching and star-gazing in Wales' first International Dark Sky Reserve. Pen y Fan is the highest mountain in southern Britain – it dominates the landscape for miles around and is a huge draw for walkers (they reckon over a quarter of a million people a year set off to climb it). Meanwhile, towns like Brecon, Abergavenny, Crickhowell and Hay-on-Wye offer more gently pleasures from bookshops to barista coffee houses.
