Abergavenny is a small town at the south-eastern tip of the Brecon Beacond National Park. It's an elegant town with an old Norman Castle and it a useful location for visiting the Brecon Beacons, in particular the three peaks of the Black nearby Mountains. Sugar Loaf, Blorenge and Skirrid are the three peaks in question and all are accessible as half day-trips from Abergavenny.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
