Brecon Cathedral

This magnificent eleventh century cathedral is most often visited for its beautiful choir vaulting and stained glass windows depicting Welsh saints. It houses the largest Norman font in Britain and the regimental chapel of the South Wales Borderers, who won renown in the Zulu War (shown in the movie Zulu). The cathedral also contains a rare Breeches Bible. The l6th Century tithe barn is now a Heritage Centre and craft shop. There is also an excellent restaurant in the cathedral grounds. There is an outstanding programme of weekend music recitals.
