Home to the Centre for Alternative Technology (or the ‘village of the future’) this is a welcoming town situated in the beautiful Dyfi Valley.

At its centre stands a remarkable 78ft clock tower.

The great Welsh patriot Owain Glyndwr named Machynlleth as capital of Wales in the 15th century and was proclaimed king.

The town is one of the stages on the National Trail known as Glyndwr's Way.
