Whilst studying at Black Mountains College, you’ll be learning in diverse study spaces across the Brecon Beacons.


Y Gaer

Y Gaer is the new cultural hub for Brecon. This contemporary building contains a brand new library, education rooms, a computer suite, an on-site cafe, as well as the refurbished Brecknock Museum & Art Gallery. There are peaceful corners for study and reflection in the atrium and outdoors in the landscaped Captain’s Walk Gardens, from which you can glimpse the hills beyond.


Hay Castle

This beautiful venue is a 17th-century mansion house which is now a centre for arts, literature and learning in the historic Welsh market town of Hay-on-Wye. The Clore Learning Space is a light and uplifting space on the first floor of Hay Castle with windows looking out to the Black Mountains.


Bronllys Academy

This recently refurbished training centre is located in the village of Bronllys, just 2 miles away from our Troed yr Harn Campus. It includes three learning spaces inside the building, with outdoor learning space and a small amphitheatre.


Troed Yr Harn

Troed yr Harn is an upland hill farm, based at the foot of The Black Mountains. It features a classroom/meeting room, a sheep barn workshop for indoor activities, toilets and showers, a large stretch tent in summer, and a camping field. There is a fire pit and plans for an outdoor kitchen.

This is a car free campus (except if you have accessibility requirements) and we do expect most visitors to walk from Talgarth; a 1.2 mile uphill walk through beautiful ancient woodland.
