The handsome market town of Brecon stands at the junction of the Rivers Usk and Honddu. For centuries the town thrived as a centre of wool production and weaving. Today you'll find Brecon Beacons hikers rubbing shoulders with soldiers from the town's large military base in the bars, eateries and outdoor-gear shops that dominate the old stone streets. There's a cathedral, castle ruins and old canal infrastructure to see, but its great appeal is as a base for forays into the national park.
