About National Park Visitor Centre
The Mountain Centre, which is how everyone refers to it locally, is run by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority. It is located 5 miles south west of Brecon and some 15 miles north of Merthyr Tydfil.
Some 1100ft / 335m above sea level offering its location offers stunning views of Pen Y Fan the highest mountain in South Wales. An adjacent moorland ridge known as Mynydd Illtyd offers some fine easy to moderately graded walking.
Children and families are catered for in a well tended large field suitable for informal games. Just outside the grounds of the centre is an area of common land called Mynydd Illtud, with plenty of easy walks with fantastic views.
There is a National Park information section with books, maps and souvenirs. An excellent exhibition offers an introduction to help visitors appreciate and explore this pristine protected landscape.
