5 Easter activities on the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal

1.    Take a boat out for the day

As spring beckons, the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal sees narrowboats starting to cruise again after the winter period. And from 27th March our electric boats and Canadian canoes are available to hire for as little as an hour on the canal at Brecon.


2.    Find a geocache

There are over 180 geocaches in the Brecon Beacons National Park, ranging from the easy-to-find to the downright difficult. Never been geocaching? Find out how to get started.


3.    Explore a museum

In Brecon, there’s the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh  and an exhibition in the Heritage Centre at the Cathedral. A little further away from the canal you’ll discover the many delights of Blaenavon World Heritage Site.


4.    Walk across an aqueduct

About 2 miles outside Brecon, the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal and towpath crosses over the river Usk on the Brynich Aqueduct. It’s a beautiful spot with lovely views, and an ideal stroll from Brecon.


5.    Visit the theatre

Brecon Basin, the terminus of the canal, is a delightful spot to watch the world go by on the canal and enjoy some refreshment at the Tipple ‘n’ Tiffin before enjoying a show at Theatr Brycheiniog.

If you like these, you may also enjoy the many other activities available near the Mon & Brec canal, with the canal providing a wide range of fun things to do for all the family!
