Talgarth

Accredited since: 2012

Welcome to our Walking Festival 2024. Now is the time to lift up your spirits from the dark winter days and plan your adventures for the first May Bank Holiday in Talgarth.
What are the special attractions of Talgarth? It is the gateway to the Black Mountains – the east part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Its stunning landscape ranges from woodland dingles to mountain tops and escarpments which have been shaped by Ice Age glaciers.
Talgarth has a long history. Neolithic burial chambers exist nearby and in the 5th century it was the centre of the kingdom of Brycheiniog ruled by King Brychan. During the 11th and 12th century the Normans left their legacy of castles at Bronllys, Dinas and Tretower. Other historic buildings in the town provide a record of the development of Talgarth. Now it is a friendly market town which is the centre for the surrounding farming industry. It is also a hub for a range of outdoor activities.

To sample these features we are offering a wide choice of guided walks for all abilities. They are led by experienced leaders who will guide you safely on the various routes. But they also provide the insights from stories which describe the local history, geology, landscape and literature of the Black Mountains. Join us for journeys through the landscape from wooded dingles to mountains tops and plateaus.

Full details of all the walks and on-line booking arrangements will be available on the Festival website at the beginning of February.
