Brecon Beacons National Park Logo

The Brecon Beacons National Park is the area of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Carmarthenshire, Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Powys, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Torfaen in South Wales enclosed by the boundary of The Brecon Beacons National Park.

The Brecon Beacons National Park includes mountains and moorland, standing stones and castles, lively waterfalls and unique geology over an area of 1344 sq km (519 sq miles).

The Brecon Beacons range of mountains, from which the park gets its name, comprise six mountains that form a long ridge in the central area of the park, just to the south of Brecon. These mountains are thought to have got their name from the lighting signal fires, or Beacons, on the summits to warn of imminent attack by invaders.

The Brecon Beacons are thought to be named after the ancient practice of lighting signal fires (beacons) on mountains to warn of attacks by invaders.
