Latest reviews | Events in Brecon | 10 Places to Stay

Brecon is a town where you'll enjoy losing yourself...not only in the narrow streets and passageways lined with Georgian and Jacobean shopfronts, but in the sense of timelessness about the place.

Ever since the Iron Age, this magical spot at the confluence of the Usk and Honddu rivers and sheltered by the mountains has been prized and protected. Now the commercial centre of the southern part of Powys, Brecon remains first and foremost a traditional Mid Wales market town - as you will see on any Tuesday or Friday!

The origins of the Cathedral, a Brecon landmark, reach back to a fortification built by the half brother of William the Conqueror after he captured the town in 1094. 300 years later, the priory he established within them was developed into the fortified Priory Church of St John the Evangelist 'half Church of God and half castle against the Welsh' as it was then described.
