Each year Brecon Beacons National Park is visited by some 4.15 million people who spend around 5.05 million days and £238 million here (2015 figures).
The many tourism businesses in the National Park and the communities that rely on their income benefit greatly from these visits. The National Park Authority works closely with them to ensure that tourism brings as many benefits to the community and environment as possible whilst minimising and managing the impacts those visitors have.
The work of developing tourism in the Brecon Beacons is being enhanced by Rural Alliances, a project funded by the EU’s Interreg IVB NWE programme, Welsh Government and Brecon Beacons National Park Authority. Rural Alliances is working to bring businesses and communities together to increase rural vibrancy as a means of counteracting the negative impacts of demographic change.
