Beacons 'becoming Mecca for film makers'
Bookmark and Share
Film and TV show makers are being increasingly attracted to the Brecon Beacons, with a number of producers discovering the wonders of the Welsh national park.

Last year saw Robert D Niro film The Killer Elite partially shot there and after 36 enquiries in 2010, there have been 80 this year from those seeking location shots, the BBC reports.

National park spokesperson Samatha Games told the broadcaster: "I think they work with us because the landscape offers such diversity.

"Hitchhiker's Guide and Doctor Who have both filmed here and dramatic fantasy films love the waterfalls and remote mountain lakes."

Those heading to the area with walking boots may discover what has enticed so many to consider filming in the national park.

Covering 1,344 sq km, the Brecon Beacons contains a range of features walkers may enjoy, including mountains such as Pen Y Fan, Fan Gyhirich, Fan Faw, Fan Nedd and Waun Rydd. ADNFCR-2803-ID-800531747-ADNFCR
