Llandrindod Wells truly has a character born out of its ‘Victorian heyday’ – a well maintained and rustic charm, combined with modern day conveniences. The spa town is a hive of activity, with a wealth of historic places in addition to the various natural and man-made beauty spots branching out from its central location.
For those looking for a spot of history, the National Cycling Museum or Abey Cwm Hir, the resting place of Llywelyn, the last Welsh King provide an interesting way to spend an afternoon. There is also historic Rock Park where visitors can sample a glass of water from the medicinal spa at the park’s Heritage Restaurant.
We use the Glen Usk Hotel, which is set in the heart of the town.
The focal point of Llandrindod Wells is the Temple Gardens in the centre of town, with its bandstand, restful seating and year-round floral displays. The town has some excellent antique and craft shops as well as larger mainstream stores. Visitors can choose from a range of pubs and restaurants, offering traditional Welsh fare and a welcoming atmosphere.
