Brecon Beacons Weekender
Join us on our inspiring one-off weekender in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park and photograph some of the finest walking paths in Europe!
We'll be based in Crickhowell, a medieval town nestled in the beautiful Usk Valley, south of the Black Mountains. From here there is no shortage of world-class photography opportunities, from crumbling abbeys, to imposing castles, to crooked churches to the sublime vistas of the National Park.
With expert tuition, non-stop photography fun, hearty feeds and evening drinks at cosy country pubs, this is an unmissable photography weekender!

- Landscapes around the Black Mountains
- The most crooked church in Great Britain
- Llangorse Lake
- The medieval streets of Crickhowell
- Blaen-y-glyn waterfalls
- The Monmouthshire Canal
- The ancient ramparts of Blaenllynfi Castle
12 - 14 October 2018 (Fri-Sun)

Alternatively you can secure any accommodation in or around Crickhowell, as this is where we will be based.
