Llanelli Tourist Information
Welcome to the largest town in Carmarthenshire

Llanelli is a coastal town and the largest town in the county of Carmarthenshire, sitting on the Loughor Estuary, Llanelli is positioned just over five miles from Burry Port and twelve miles from Swansea.

This extensive town is bursting with many fantastic local independent shops and popular national high street named retailers, complemented with a fabulous indoor market that is open six days a week, along with an outdoor market is held every Thursday and Saturday. There are plenty of eateries around the town from national chain restaurants to local cafe’s, restaurants and pubs.

Located on Bridge Street is Llanelly House, a beautiful Georgian townhouse which was once the home of the Stepney family, here you're able to take a guided tour to learn more about the house and its family and the local area.

To the North of the town centre and set in 24 glorious acres of parkland is Parc Howard Museum, housed inside a mansion (built by the Buckley brewing family in 1885) is a large collection of locally-made Llanelly Pottery along with paintings by local artists, portraits and other works of art, as well as artifacts relating to the local area. The gardens and parkland provide the ideal place for kids to run around and burn off some excess energy, enjoy a family picnic, or to just wander around.

Located on the Western edge of Llanelli and set in a sprawling 1,800 acre estate lies Stradey Castle, a stunningly beautiful Grade II* listed heritage property which is known to be one of very few historic houses in Carmarthenshire that is still in private hands - Those being the hands of the Mansel Lewis family. Visitors are taken on a very informative guided tour of this fine Mid-Victorian gem of a house to learn all about its fascinating history. The grounds of Stradey Castle are particularly beautiful with its breathtaking gardens, especially the woodland garden with its large collection of trees and shrubs.

Just outside the town near the estuary is Machynys Peninsula Golf Club, here golfers can enjoy a round on the club's modern and challenging 18-hole links championship golf course which boasts some of the truest greens in Wales.

The coastal part of the town along the Loughor Estuary forms part of the 14 mile stretch of landscaped parkland called the Millennium Coastal Park. This parkland, which has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, provides visitors with a unique range of tourist attractions, leisure facilities, and a number of wildlife habitats that are home to varied flora and fauna as well as specialist and rare plants. Llanelli Beach also forms part of the Millennium Coastal Park, it is roughly a mile long and is located along the Northern shore of the Loughor Estuary, the beach is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views, but unfortunately swimming is not advised due to its estuary location.
