Brecon Beacons National Park

Monmouthshire is the gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park, winner of the Best Destination in Wales award 2018. Visit the foodie market town of Abergavenny, discover the ruins of Llanthony Priory, relax on a narrowboat on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal or scale the heights of the Black Mountains. The Brecon Beacons National Park became the country's first International Dark Sky Reserve in 2012, and there are dozens of places around the National Park, including designated Dark Sky Discovery Sites in Monmouthshire, where you can stop off and experience spectacularly clear night skies.
