LocationBuilth Wells

Positioned on the banks of the River Wye, this was originally a popular spa town in Victorian times; today it hosts the Royal Welsh Show which is the largest of its kind in Europe. The showground has numerous events all year round so it’s always worth checking what gardening or livestock shows may be on during your visit, there is also a lovely Christmas Fair.

When in the town, visitors will notice the fascinating Llywelyn Mural on Broad Street, depicting the last days of an ancient Prince of Wales. Sadly today all that remains of Builth Castle are the earthworks however there are nice views out across the town to the river and information boards for those interested in the history of the castle.

The old Assembly Rooms offer small film showings, live music and comedy nights. Groe Park is a nice spot for a walk or picnic, the riverside path forms part of the Wye Valley Walk and the town is also in a great location for picking up either the Northern or Southern section of the National Cycle Route. There are great angling opportunities available locally and pony trekking, the red kite feeding centre at Gigrin farm is also not to be missed.

Mid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
