A busy market town close to Cardigan, Newcastle Emlyn boasts the remains of a 15th century castle and lies peacefully on the banks of the River Teifi.

It is famous as a centre of the so-called Rebecca Rioters who protested over the introduction of toll charges.

The first Welsh printing press was established here at the beginning of the 18th century.
