Carmarthen Castle is well worth a visit for those interested in medieval architecture, whilst the castles of Kidwelly and Laugharne are located only a short drive away.

Just out of town is the Gwili Steam Railway, which follows the route of the former Great Western Railway as it meanders up the beautiful wooded Gwili Valley. Trains run to and from the Bronwydd Arms Station (3 miles north east on the A484) between May and September with special events such as ‘Santa Specials’ and ‘Thomas the Tank’ days.
Only 12 miles away you can fin Pembrey Country Park (12 miles south on the A484) and Cefn Sidan Beach. Attractions in the park include a ski slope, miniature railway, a complex of footpaths and cycleways which run through the park and Pembrey Forest linking to the Millennium Coast Path.
