Llanelli is the largest town in Carmarthenshire in South Wales. A regeneration programme has transformed this former coal mining town with an ugly industrial skyline to a real leisure destination with green spaces and glorious views over Carmarthen Bay.
The Millennium Coastal Park, which stretches along 13 miles of coastline from Loughor to Pembrey, includes Llanelli Beach, a Discovery Centre, cycle paths and panoramic views over the bay, estuary and across to the Gower peninsula. Nature lovers will be thrilled to discover the National Wetlands Centre, a nature reserve where they can hand feed rare geese, see the flamingos, bird watch from the hides and explore the reserve to see butterflies, dragonflies and more.
In the town centre, visitors can explore Llanelly House, one of the finest early Georgian buildings in Wales. It has been totally restored and offers guided tours, ghost walks, exhibitions and a café.
