“The Route 66 of Wales”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

A fine road that goes all the way from Cardiff to North Wales taking in the breathtaking scenery of both the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia national parks. I have travelled on this road literally hundreds of times and never tire of its visual delights. This is the backbone of our great nation - the route 66 of Cymru Fach. Take a whole day and stop off whenever you fancy.

“Very busy”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

Main road North out of Cardiff through to Brecon and all points North. Very busy during peak times but, as you get further north from Cardiff there are great views like Cafarthfa Castle and you pass the sad town of Aberfan where the tragic slippage killed so many School children.

“A470 Trunk Road.”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

the A470 trunk road winds its way from Cardiff to North Wales via Brecon (pleasant stop) Mid Wales (ideal picnic spot0 and various other scenic areas. Although an "A" road, speed restrictions apply in some areas, but a pleasant scenic drive.
