Brecon is centrally positioned in the National Park and is a very popular base for walkers, mountain bikers and those who just enjoy being within the beautiful surrounding countryside with breathtaking views. The cathedral town boasts two museums - The Welsh Borderer's Museum and the Brecon Cathedral along with a shop and cafe. The bustling town centre is quaint with many individual shops and cafes. There is an annual world renowned Jazz Festival held in the town during August.
Crickhowell is a small, pretty and sheltered Georgian market town set between the lower slopes of Table Mountain and the backdrop of Llangattock Mountain with its great limestone crags. The River Usk, renowned for the good trout and salmon fishing, flows past spanned by an interesting buttressed bridge with twelve arches facing downstream and thirteen arches facing upstream. There are many excellent walks in the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and horse riding, fishing, and canoeing can all be arranged locally.

Castle, the town has a wealth of interesting old buildings and the "largest second-hand bookshop in the world" in the old cinema- one of the 30 major antiquarian bookshops, each with their own speciality. Hay-on-Wye hosts the world famous Literary Festival.
Builth Wells in the Mid Wales countryside is varied with magnificent great reservoirs using the natural shape of the landscape - now established over many years and a natural habitat for all kinds of wildlife and flora. There are great expanses of open countryside where the Red Kite (which can be viewed at close proximity in several Red Kite Centres), buzzard, kestrel and sparrow hawks wheel and hover overhead.
The Upper Swansea Valley is an ideal location for those wishing to explore this area known as 'Waterfall Country',
