The bank holiday season is nearly here. If you are looking for a trip for next week or one of the future bank holiday weekends here are a few suggestions.
Walk up Snowdon
Choose one of the many routes and go up the highest mountain in Wales. That’s what I did last May bank holiday. I hope you’ll enjoy better weather than I did. Though looking outside the window, the chances of that are quite slim. It was fun even in the rain!
Backpack through the Peak District
Peak District is Hobbit land pure. Here is a suggestion for a weekend circular trip from Edale to Hope and back. Particularly the ridge walk from Loose Hill to Mam Tor is great fun.
Explore the Brecon Beacons
Brecon Beacons aren’t too far away from London and with all of their undulating ridges, they are gorgeous. I’ve collated suggestions for 7 day trips in Brecon Beacons in a previous post. For a longer adventure you can go wild camping along the Brecon Beacons ridge. Or you could try one of these trips, which should be fun even without the snow:
- Ascent of Pen y Fan and a walk along the ridge to Fan y Big
- A circular walk along Cerrig Edmwnt and a number of waterfalls
