A visit to Abergavenny in the summer

We've got fantastic locally-produced food, gorgeous places to stay and the great outdoors... book your visit today!

The beautiful Black Mountains are the backdrop to Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales.

With its annual Abergavenny Food Festival, the town is a mecca for foodies – but there’s so much more to explore.

As well as gorgeous ancient inns and gastro pubs we have history, geography and literature on our side.

Be inspired by landscape and history

Our area has inspired writers and poets – and when you see some of our views you’ll understand why. Try looking down on the town from our local mountain, the Sugar Loaf, for starters.

Know any Horrible Histories fans? Nearby is the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Blaenavon’s World Heritage Site is just up the road.

Before that the area was fought over by Romans and Celts, Tudors and Roundheads. We’ve got the castles and Roman remains to prove it!

Have an action-packed stay

Visit Linda Vista Gardens - Abergavenny

If getting out and getting active is your thing, you can try everything from canoeing to hang gliding, cycling to climbing.

Or just take a gentle stroll along the lanes, riverbanks and meadows of the Usk Valley. Bring your fishing rod if you fancy trying your luck!

Relax and unwind – whatever the weather 

Whatever you want to do, we’ve got ideas to inspire you – on rainy days as well as when the sun shines, and whatever the season.

Log fires and winter walks can be just as much fun as lazy, summer picnics.

And you can take your pick of accommodation from romantic getaways in rose-covered cottages to tucked-away campsites, boutique hotels and traditional B&Bs.

So visit, explore and tell your friends you’ve stayed in the shadow of the Sugar Loaf mountain – we think it’s just as special as the one on the other side of the world!
