A paradise for cavers and walkers alike, this incredibly varied region of the Brecon Beacons National Park is a great base from which to enjoy all manner of outdoor activities. See our What to do section for more details.
This fantastic Victorian garden sits on the banks of the River Tawe and is made up of 40 acres of meadow and stunning woodland with ponds, picnic areas and a good path system suitable for wheel chair users. A great place for the children to let off steam, it also houses the Changing Seasons tearooms and restaurant.
The village of Penderyn is home to the only whisky distillery in Wales and the recently opened visitors centre offers tours of the distillery and an insight into the history of single malt whisky making in Wales.
Offering a varied day out for the whole family, the National Show Caves Centre provides the chance to explore some of the 11 miles of cave system, said to be the largest in Europe. Discover the spectacular underground scenery before heading back outside to meet the Shire horses at the Victorian farm and watching the childrens faces when they see the dinosaur park!
Situated in the village of Pontneddfechan, the newly refurbished Waterfalls Centre is a good starting point for those wishing to explore this region of the park. The centre itself houses an interactive exhibition explaining the origins of the Fforest Fawr Geopark and the formation of the waterfalls.
There is also a large retail park with multi-screen cinema, restaurants and a large leisure centre at Merthyr Tydfil.
