Southern Wales Tourism

Blaenavon

Located at the gateway to the South Wales Valleys, partly within the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape is a testament to the human endeavour of miners and ironworkers of the past.Blaenavon World Heritage Centre

Set in 33 square kilometres, the attractions, events, activities and landscape make a perfect destination for a day out. The main attractions such as Big Pit National Coal Museum, Blaenavon Ironworks, the World Heritage Centre and Blaenavon Heritage Railway are all just a few minutes' drive or walk from each other. Indeed, there are so many brilliant attractions that you need to spend more than a day here to enjoy everything - so plan a weekend if you can!

Other attractions in this corner of South Wales include Greenmeadow Community Farm and the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway.
