The Road B4560 in Wales is one of the most scenic drives in Europe.

Located within the Brecon Beacons National Park, in the county of Powys, in south Wales, the B4560 (Llangynidr Road) is said to be one of the most scenic drives in Europe.

This paved epic road runs north from Beaufort to Talgarth via Llangynidr, Bwlch, and Llangorse. Frequently used for test-drives the road crosses some of Britain’s loveliest open countryside. This winding road is 27km (16.9 miles) long. Its prettiest part is between Llangynidr and Bwlch. The views are pretty spectacular over the Brecon Beacons and the moorland section looks very rugged.A drive not to be missed! This narrow, winding road packs in panoramic views over Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains—with plenty of challenging mountain corners and dreamy villages.

Expect hairpin bends, many blind crests and a variety of fast sweeping bends. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. Ice and snow sometimes close the road. Due to its proximity to the Heads of the Valleys road, this one does get busy on weekends so it's best to go early, although there are overtaking opportunities.
