For many visitors, the stunning scenery surrounding Abergavenny is one of the main attractions.
The mountains around the town are a huge draw for walkers, giving them breath-taking views from Mid Wales to Somerset.
For many, a holiday would not be complete without the conquering of Abergavenny’s Three Peaks – The Skirrid, The Sugarloaf, and The Blorenge.
There are walks of differing levels of difficulty, so you should find something to suit your trip!
All three are within easy reach of your holiday narrowboat on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal.
In 2013, Abergavenny became the 100th Walkers Are Welcome (WAW) town in the UK.
Non-profit community interest company WAW’s group in the town has created an online resource for walkers visiting the area and negotiated packages with businesses in the town.
The local council also liaises with the group to ensure local rights of way are improved.
Walkers Are Welcome aims to encourage towns and villages to support walkers by giving them information about walks, ensuring footpaths and facilities are maintained, giving them options to use public transport, and encouraging local people to get involved in walking.
