50 Walks in Brecon Beacons and South Wales

50 Walks in Brecon Beacons and South Wales

by: Tom Hutton
The majority of the walks in this book are centred on the area's two National Parks. The Pembrokeshire Coast offers spectacular cliff top scenery where seabirds, seals and porpoises vie for your attention and the Brecon Beacons, with their table-top summits, from where you can admire some of the finest upland scenery in the country. The remainder of the walks showcase other favourite images of South Wales including the best of the Gower Coast and a beautiful stretch of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. The Welsh Valleys, with their industrial heritage and more recent transformation are also not forgotten.

This guide explores some of the best of South Wales. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
