Lonely Planet Visit Brecon Beacons

Posted on 24 Aug 2017

This weekend will see the world famous travel media company Lonely Planet stop off in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Their epic summer road trip in an all- electric Tesla is part of a staycation to showcase some of Scotland, England and Wales’ most iconic National Parks. On Saturday the travel media company are inviting people to join them at their stop off at the National Park Visitor Centre near Libanus for exclusive events, book promotions and giveaways.

Lonely Planet will be at the Visitor Centre between 10am and 3pm as part of the Brecon Beacons Summer Fayre event which is free to enter. The trip will also celebrate a number of new Lonely Planet book releases, including Epic Drives of the World and National Parks of Europe which features the Brecon Beacons.

Tom Hall, Editorial Director at Lonely Planet said: “We’ve been inspired by our new books to head out and explore some of Britain’s fantastic scenery and amazing places. We’re blessed with an incredible variety of natural landscapes and we’re looking forward to getting out on the road and visiting some of the best – and meeting fellow travellers along the way.  Many road trips in the future could be taken by electric car, so this trip aims to provide a taste of what to expect and how this might transform people’s travel experiences.”

Mel Doel, Chairman of the National Park Authority, said: “Our National Park boasts some of the most scenic walks and places of natural beauty within the UK and it is great to be hosting a world famous publication such as Lonely Planet.  The visit will coincide with our Summer Fayre that will take place at the Visitor Centre all weekend, offering a great day out for all.”
