A Day Out To Brecon


Brecon is a market town in Southern Powys in Mid Wales. The main reason a lot of people go there or stay is because of the Brecon Beacons nearby which you can see dotted around the town in the distance. You can walk up the beacons and surrounding area, but always be prepared because it is hard work. 
On the day I went I was really lucky with the weather so it was such a beautiful day. I thought I would just take you along on the path I took when I went there.

So beginning with the classic river view, whilst walking over the main bridge to walk into the town, you get to look at this lovely view. I always like to look below at the ducks who are swimming around.




.
Taking a stroll along the riverside, you finally end up at a little amusement building that has different games and a park nearby. You can also hire out pedal boats here which I absolutely love doing, it is a great way to have fun whilst working on the thighs.




This is one of my favourite places in Brecon near the river, because you get a beautiful view and you can just see in the distance part of the Brecon Beacons. I could honestly sit on the bench for hours and just stare at that view. Due to it being a town it does not have that overbearing hustle and bustle noise, so you can definitely get some peaceful moments away from the main town.


After staying here for a while, my main focus was to go back into the town and have a look around. Below you can see part of the old Castle they still have there which usually has something going on, antique events mainly held there.



Then it was my favourite time of the day, getting an ice cream.


It has quite a well known ice cream shop called Llanfaes Dairy which make so many different flavours of ice cream they all just look so yummy. I have been coming to Brecon every so often since I was a child and my ultimate flavour and always will be is Mango Yoghurt. So to me there never was much of a decision to make I already knew.


For me I do love going to cities and having a look round, but main bulks of it are always filled with shops or restaurants meaning it is pretty impossible to do it in a day trip. Visiting a market town like Brecon is perfect if you want to explore, shop and just have a chilled out atmosphere. I would really recommend it if you are interested in antiques too, because they have so many different antique stores I always find hidden gems tucked away.

Have you ever been to Brecon before? Is there a town you would recommend to go and visit as a day trip? Let me know in the comments

Have a lovely Tuesday
