Coach Holidays to Carmarthen – The oldest town in Wales features a wide range of historic buildings, from remnants of Romans walls to Clough-Ellis’s bridge over the Towy, via a 13th century castle and 18th century Guildhall. Carmarthen has all modern amenities including fabulous shops on the ultra modern St Catherine’s Walk, as well as independent boutiques on the older narrow streets of the town centre. Carmarthen indoor market has undergone a relocation to new bright airy premises and features the famous Carmarthen Ham – a favourite of HRH Prince Charles – alongside local delicacies such as laver bread (which is in fact seaweed) and cockles. At Castle House the old gaol is now a museum where visitors are regaled with stories of crime and punishment through the ages. The route to the river along Quay Street is flanked by well preserved 18th century houses. Carmarthen Quay, established by the Romans and for many centuries an important trading port, was largely rebuilt in 1805 and features many listed historic features from that era.
