I visited this visitor centre on a wet, miserable and low visibility day. I chose it as I hoped there would be lots of information on the National Park. Sadly, it seemed to be more a case of a few maps on the wall showing...More

At the end of a winding road but worth it. The views are lovely and the centre is very tranquil. A cafe there sells all you might need for a visit. Park and walks if required. Nice shop. Pleasant staff.

The visitor centre has some nice locally-made items for sale. There is a cafe with a large garden which overlooks a beautiful mountain. Tea, coffee and snacks seem reasonably-priced. From the far end of the car park, it is possible to do a short, gentle...More

This visitor centre is superbly located for views of Pen y Fan and provides access to the surrounding area for walks with other amazing views. The car park is charged (shouldn't be a problem for most people, the tight wads won't approve), and there is...More

We arrived late at the Visitor Centre after a busy day sightseeing. Have noted the comments from other visitors but from our point of view the Visitor Centre was fine as a café, a delightful gift shop and clean toilets. Our grandchildren enjoyed the play...More

As the title says, it was a good place to spend about 2hours going for a short walk, and having a cuppa & a slice of cake in the cafe. The car parking was reasonable, at £1 for 2 hours, and I think you’d struggle...More

We stopped by, paid for parking and went in expecting to learn about the park, the geology, the flora and fauna. Nothing like that - it’s a gift shop with some books about walks etc for sale and a map or two that you can...More

Lots of wonderful gifts & souvenirs in the gift shop. Lots of Welsh handmade items and local crafts. Prices were reasonable for such goods - I'm happy to pay more for local high-quality items. Service was fast and friendly. Good views around the area too.

We spent a few hours with a lovely stroll up to the trig point and finished off with tea and Welsh cakes. I cannot fault the restaurant- friendly service and being able to sit outside was great. The shop is also good. Good to see...More
