Brecon Beacons: Destination Of The Day (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Add this park to places we've never heard of but are now dying to visit.

Brecon Beacons National Park, in South Wales, was first established as a British park in 1957. The Park, a whopping 520 square miles big, boasts 268 ancient monuments spanning 7,000 years, not to mention stunning views of the Welsh landscape. In 2005, the park opened a 100-mile walk called "Beacons Way," which leads from one end of the park to the other.

We're dying to go see the landscape and view sheep nestled in ancient castles, the light hitting the mountains and the stunning views.
