Crickhowell tourist guide
Crickhowell biggest 'public secret' is that is has, over the years, become the Gourmet Centre of Wales, in very much the same way Brecon has with Jazz and Hay on Wye with the literary world. There is simply an incredible range of eating establishments, from traditional fish and chips right through to haute cuisine. While the town also has some fabulous architecture to enjoy and some great local shopping, there can be no doubt that whether you want a light evening snack, superbly cooked Welsh lamb, sweet and sour chicken or a gourmet delight, Crickhowell is the place to visit.
Also worth taking a look at is the 16th century bridge crossing the River Usk connecting Crickhowell with Llangynidr. It has 13 arches, but unless you look carefully it appears on one side to have only 12.
