School Trips, Brecon Beacons

With its areas of outstanding natural beauty and a wealth of local history, South Wales offers the perfect destination for academic or adventure based trips.

The South Wales landscape is full of hidden secrets waiting to be discovered by your students, as they piece together the creation of the environment surrounding them. Follow the river Tawe, from its source below Moel Feity, as it makes its way from the old red sandstone hills, through deep limestone gorges, to the dramatic Gower coastline, only an hours drive away.

Aside from its natural beauty, the Brecon Beacons National Park offers a step into its industrial past. South Wales played a leading role in the Industrial Revolution, which shaped the landscape with limestone quarries, coal and silica mines. A number of impressive heritage sites, including Glyn-Neath Gunpowder Works and Blaenavon Ironworks, provide a window into this important era.
