If you enjoy making the most of the great outdoors, you’ll simply love the Brecon Beacons. Located just over an hour’s drive from the Academy, the National Park is a stunning location where you can take in the spectacular scenery whilst getting active.
Covering 520 square miles – roughly the same area as the London underground system – the Beacons include four mountain ranges and is a place for the adventurous to head. It has something for everyone - walkers, runners, cyclists, mountain bikers, horse riders and wildlife-watchers.
If, however, you don’t fancy getting the adrenaline pumping then why not pay the area’s beautiful towns a visit or simply relax in one of it’s many pubs and Michelin-star restaurants.
