Kidwelly Tourist Information
A lovely town in the Gwendraeth Valley

Kidwelly is a coastal town which can be found nestled in the Gwendraeth Valley lying on the banks of the River Gwendraeth above Carmarthen Bay, from Kidwelly the county town of Carmarthen is ten miles away to the North and the coastal village of Pembrey is about three and a half miles away to the South.

There are a small number of shops in Kidwelly along with a selection of eateries to choose from.

The pièce de résistance for this coastal town is its well-preserved castle which is now in the caring hands of Cadw, Kidwelly Castle provides a marvellous family visitor attraction and ideal for history buffs. Lying on a steep ridge above the banks of the River Gwendraeth, this a mighty and imposing monument is still very much intact where visitors will find plenty of rooms, little nooks and crannies and stairs to explore, along with outstanding views from the tower.

A mile North of the town is Kidwelly Industrial Museum which lays claim to being the oldest surviving tinplate works in Britain. The museum offers a fascinating and informative insight into the tinplate industry in general and specifically the packmill process. The museum displays original artefacts, exhibits and various machinery that was used in the local Welsh industries.

About four miles East of Kidwelly and within Gwendraeth Valley is Glyn Abbey Golf & Country Club, it offers golfers a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf in a tranquil and picturesque setting on its 18-hole parkland course.

Pembrey Country Park
Situated approximately three miles from Kidwelly and overlooking the coastal scenery of Carmarthen Bay is Pembrey Country Park, this very popular and well-established visitor attraction provides its visitors with 550 acres of idyllic woodlands to explore on foot, on a bike, or horseback using Pembrey Park Riding Centre. In addition, Pembrey Country Park has a vast array of fun activities including a large adventure playground and forest adventure playground, outdoor Laser Tag, a miniature steam railway, crazy golf and pitch and putt, to name but a few activities on offer. The park is also home to the longest toboggan run in Wales as well as a 130-metre long Dry Ski Slope.

Home to the famous Pembrey Beach
Separating the waters of Carmarthen Bay from Pembrey Country Park is Pembrey Beach (Cefn Sidan), a fantastic seven and a half mile stretch of fine golden sands which makes its way from Burry Port Harbour all the way to Tywyn Point near Kidwelly. This popular beach offers plenty of room for everybody, although at low tide you may have a bit of a walk on your hands for a paddle as the tide can go out for almost a mile. That said, the sea does warm up fairly quickly along this stretch, and is noticeably warmer when taking that essential dip.
