Llandrindod Wells (pronounced cl-andrindod) is a small Victorian spa town set almost exactly in the middle of Wales. The odd and interesting thing about this little place, inhabited by only approximately seven thousand people, is that it has a lake, and quite a large one at that. And the interesting thing about this moderately large lake is that a few hundred years ago it didn’t exist. That is before the might and immodesty of the great Victorian age of innovation and grand designs deigned that it should have a lake so that wealthy women and gentlemen might relax here amidst the sometimes overwhelming beauty of mid-Wales.

Once a year the town holds a ‘Victorian week’ when all sorts of old and ancient types emerge to parade all manner of things from yesteryear and to generally kick up a right good party to entertain the tourists, and themselves along with it.

An attractive riverside market town with many facilities: theatre, cinema, museums, leisure centre (including a swimming pool) cottage hospital and lots of outdoor areas for recreation. There can be traffic congestion on bank holidays owing to the medieval road layout in the centre, but there are several cheap car parks near the centre. There are many old buildings to see, particularly the cathedral and Brecknock museum.
