About Talgarth and Surrounding Area
Talgarth is a traditional market town on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and a centre for tourism in the area of the Black Mountains.
In just three hours you can drive from London (two hours from the Midlands) to the Black Mountains of south-east mid Wales. The town of Talgarth is in Powys; the least populated county in the south of the country and which also boasts the UK’s best road network. Talgarth town and the surrounding quirky small villages and hamlets provide an eclectic mix of treasures to explore. Neighbors include Hay on Wye, world famous ‘town of books’ some eight miles east on the Herefordshire border, and Brecon, eight miles west, home of arts and crafts.
To the south of Talgarth are Crickhowell (ten miles) and Abergavenny (18 miles), completing the triangle of towns which surround the Black Mountain range.
For mountain bikers who relish a challenge, the Black Mountains offer the only BLACK route in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Pony trekking is a pleasant pastime; whether you are a complete beginner or an adventurous experienced rider there is something to suit everyone. World class gliding and hang gliding (perfect thermals on the northern escarpment) offer a bird’s eye view of the Black Mountain range. For those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground, hill walkers are rewarded with stunning views, solitude and an abundance of wildlife including red kites and mountain ponies (not to mention thousands of sheep!).
Annual international events on our doorstep include the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show at Builth Wells (July), the Green Man music festival (August), the Hay Literary Festival (May) and the Brecon Jazz Festival (August). The Brecon Beacons range, some 15 miles to the west attract tourists in large numbers, so come to the spectacular Black Mountains, and get ‘far from the madding crowd’.
We welcome you to use this website either as a visitor to the area, or as a local, to find out ‘What’s On’. Croeso!
