About this location

The Merthyr Tydfil County region

WALES is situated to the mid-west of the united kingdom. Attached to England down its eastern edge then to the western edge by water/ the Bristol Channel and the Irish sea.

The country is known as being a mountainous region, lush and green. It also has many fine golden sandy beaches temperature quite variable.

Merthyr Vale


The transformation of the Valleys from their industrial past to now, means that the landscape is richer and more beautiful with cleaner rivers for trout and salmon fishing.

Throughout the valley, in which Merthyr Tydfil lies, were three large ironworks, which exported iron worldwide in the early 1800's,

with many Coal mines being sunk in the late 1800/ early 1900's.

Diversification has taken place since and there are now many varied activities on offer, across a wide spectrum of the great outdoors.

For example:



Mountain Biking

Rock climbing (indoor and outdoors)




Hang gliding





There are also places where you can re-live our history of such hard, but great bygone days. For example:

Big Pit

Llancaiach Fawr

Blaenafon world heritage centre

Cyfarthfa Castle museum in Merthyr Tydfil

The museum of Welsh life in Cardiff.

See website :- for a more detailed list of what is on offer.
