Due to other expanding business interests (with our tour companies GeoWorld Travel and PolarWorld Travel), Brecon Beacons Tours is taking a break for now. We won't be offering tours in 2022 and we will be reviewing the situation at the end of the year.

If you are interested in geology day tours or if you are an organisation looking for a tour for a larger group (e.g. a U3A, a school or a university), please get in contact, as we may still be able to help with this.

Brecon Beacons Tours offers Sightseeing Tours and Walking Tours in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales.  Our tours start either at  Abergavenny station, the gateway to the National Park, or your Brecon Beacons based accommodation. Abergavenny station is only 40 minutes from Cardiff and 2 hours from London, so our tours can be done as day trips from many UK locations.
