Celtic Beacons

The Celtic Beacons are the places where you’ll find the sights, sounds and stories that shaped our parts of the world. Each Beacon will reveal a snapshot of a particular moment in our history, whether it was 2,000 years ago, 200 years ago or in living memory. But as you piece these together, you’ll gradually build up a full picture of the regions and people we are today - and are likely to be in the future.

Naturally, some of these places are our tourism ‘crown jewels’. But many of them you’ll only find by taking roads less travelled, by switching off the sat-nav and relying on your own instincts (and maybe a good old-fashioned map). Because the more off the beaten track you go, the better you’ll get to know us.  You might even end up making your own Celtic Routes
