With its narrow compact streets, Georgian facades and the restored canal basin, the town tells tales of times gone by. For culture, seek out the 12th century Cathedral, South Wales Borderers Military Museum, and Brecknock Museum and Art Gallery as well as Theatr Brycheiniog. Brecon offers many great places to eat and stay, and the monthly Brecknock Farmers Market is the biggest in the area.
Specialist independent retailers offer unique and affordable products with a warm and friendly service. Local organic and specialist foods are in abundance and always worth seeking out. More active visitors will enjoy the outdoor equipment shops, bike hire, the Taff Trail cycle path from Brecon or one of its outstanding golf courses. With a professional theatre and independent cinema, cafes and restaurants and a leisure centre for rainy days, there's always something to do in this wonderful market town.
