7-Night Brecon And Return

Canal Boat Route
With only a handful of locks, this is utterly lazy water. But don’t be fooled by the tranquillity, the tumultuous scenery is a heart stopper.

Revel in its peace, sweeping views and beautiful remoteness.

Why we love this trip…
Explore the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape UNESCO World Heritage Site
Visit the pretty market town of Crickhowell
See large medieval bridges
Soak up unrivalled Welsh views
Enjoy a wealth of activities in Brecon
