Weather

The Brecon Beacons National Park in common with other areas in Wales gets it fair share of wet weather, but the east of the national park is significantly drier than the west, and poor weather does not need to stop you having a great day by joining one of our tours. Most of our customers book their tours weeks or months in advance when there is no way of knowing what the weather will be. Our Sightseeing Tours and our Waterfall Country Walking Tours which take place at lower levels, can be done in every weather, accept for the handful of occasions a year when the roads are blocked by snow. In fact the waterfalls which are seen on both our Heart of the Park and Waterfall Country sightseeing tour and our Waterfall Country walking tours are at their best in rainy conditions because the extra water increases their flow.

The Weather Forecast for the next three days

AVERAGE Temperatures

In July, which is normally our warmest month, the average daytime maximum temperature is around 21ºC. January and February are our coldest months, with an average daytime minimum of just under 0ºC.

Poor weather however does effect of Mountain Walking Tours which are the: Pen-y-Fan, Black Mountains and Carmarthen Fans Walking Tours. In the event of poor weather which may include prolonged heavy rain, lightening storms, fog, or blizzards we reserve the right depending on the severity of the weather to switch your walking tour, to either an easier grade, or to The Two Honeypots walking tour, or to a Waterfall Country walking tour,  or a  Sightseeing Tour of your choice. If we do plan to make any changes due to weather we aim to discuss it with you at least 24 hours before the tour is due to take place.
