While in Brecon, you might wish to visit the Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery. One of the finest and liveliest small museums in Wales, it charts the prehistory, history, natural history and art of the local area, including an original 19th-century Assize Court, Welsh love spoons and ceramics, and exhibition galleries. You can gain free entry to Brecknock with a National Art Pass, which enables its members to enjoy free entry to over 240 museums, galleries and historic houses throughout the UK as well as 50% off entry to major exhibitions.
The pass is presented by one of Landmark's partners, the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, which has been supporting museums and galleries for over 110 years by helping them to buy and display great works of art for everyone to enjoy. Income raised through the National Art Pass goes straight back into their charitable programme. Find more about it at artfund.org/national-art-pass.
