Travel through the South Wales Valleys and the Brecon Beacons National Park on this day trip!

The experience of descending into the depths of this mine attract people from all around the world to visit and wonder at the life of a Welsh coal miner. Travelling a short distance we enter the Brecon Beacons National Park, a landscape once shaped by glaciers but now with recognisable by its rolling green hills, sandstone peaks, high mountain lakes and cascading waterfalls . Travel onto the old market town of Brecon full of cosy little streets with plenty of shops, boutiques and cafes for lunch! Be sure to spend some time at the fine Cathedral here too. Our final stop is the National Park Visitors Centre to discover why the Brecon Beacons is so special.
