Carmarthen is a busy and thriving Norman market town, situated close to the Brecon Beacons National Park. The town is renowned for its busy market where you will find stalls selling produce from Swansea to Cardigan Bay, cheeses from Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, local organic foods, farmhouse salt-bacon, sausages, delicious cockles from the beaches of South Wales and the renowned laver bread. Carmarthen is Wales' oldest town with a history extending back over 2,000 years. Romans inhabited the area and there is evidence of a Celtic church dedicated to St. Teulyddog. The Roman town's layout is preserved in the modern street pattern to the east of St Peter's Church, whereas the evidence of the Norman occupation, the Castle, is situated on a rocky knoll overlooking the River Tywi. Today, the town has a great selection of pubs, restaurants and shops and there are many attractions in the vicinity, such as Dylan Thomas's Boathouse and the National Botanical gardens of Wales.
Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.
