The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Wild in Wales


4. Insider’s Tip

Brecon Beacons National Park is easily accessed by bus during the summer.  

High rental rates and exorbitant gas prices make cars a less-than-enticing option for visitors looking to explore the country. Fortunately, Cardiff is fully accessible by foot, and an integrated rail and bus system provides easy access to remote areas of southern Wales. One of the best transportation options is only available May–September: the Beacons Bus, which offers direct daytrip transport from Cardiff to spots throughout Brecon Beacons National Park ($14).
