Situated among beautiful hills on the edge of the Black Mountains, this peaceful market town is a useful base from which to explore this part of Wales.

The River Tywi is crossed here by the longest single-span bridge in Wales and close by is picturesque Dinefwr Castle. In his epic poem ‘Faerie Queen’, Edmund Spenser claimed that King Arthur’s wizard Merlin lies sleeping in a cave in local woods.
Four miles from the town, Carreg Cennen Castle stands imperiously a top a 300ft rock. It is said to be the most dramatic castle in the whole of Wales.

Nearby Aberglasney House and Gardens have become one of Carmarthenshire’s leading tourist attractions. The gardens were constructed in the 16th century but fell into neglect before being re-discovered Heligan-style. A yew tunnel is one of the oldest garden features in Europe.
