Review: Garwnant Visitor Centre


Things To Do | by | 10th Mar 2016

Regular reader Rhian recently got in contact with us about her family’s trip to Garwnant Visitor Centre.

“I wanted to share with you a video I made of our recent visit to Garwnant, Brecon Beacons. We had a great time!

There is an adventure park, lots of picnic benches, wooden sculptures, a visitor centre with a cafe and toilets, walking trails to see waterfalls and beautiful scenery.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to go to the waterfall in my manual wheelchair as I would need someone to help push me.

Other than that, I recommend it!”

Check out Rhian’s blog for more news, pictures and videos of her travels.

Garwnant Visitor Centre is near Merthyr Tydfil and is often seen as the southern gateway to the Brecon Beacons. It’s just off the A470 and is 5 miles north of Merthyr and 14 miles south of Brecon. You can download a map on how to get there here.

While visiting a country park can be seen as a car-only activity, Garwnant can be accessed via public transport. TrawsCymru’s T4 service (Cardiff to Newton) – and in summer months the Beacons Bus – passes Garwnant. If you ever need info on public transport in Wales, check out Traveline Cymru. The nearest train station is in Merthyr Tydfil. Garwnant is also on the Taff Trail.
