Carmarthen, also known as Caerfyrddin, is the county town of Carmarthenshire, Wales. Located along the Tywi River, it is home to a population of about 14,000 inhabitants. This market town is also the administrative and cultural centre of the county, apart from being a major tourist destination.
Blessed with a mild climate, the region is typified by warm summers and cool winters. Although the overall climate is moderate, the rainy season is an exception with heavy rains experienced every year.
Regarded as the oldest town in Wales, Carmarthen has been industrially active since a long time with agriculture and wool manufacture being the basic activities. In recent times, the economy of the region is based on farming, textiles, mining and tourism.

Overall Guide : The Carmarthen Castle is a landmark attraction of Carmarthen and an archaeological wonder. The castle is a beautiful amalgamation of medieval walls and cobble-stone floors and is the perfect location for a day trip for the whole family, with guided... more tours available. Featuring a wide range of ancient relics and artefacts which represent the county’s heritage and culture is the Carmarthen County Museum. Educational and informative exhibitions are also held for the visitors, which makes the place all the more interesting. An excellent blend of ethnic goods and modern handicrafts is presented in the Carmarthen Market, where shoppers can indulge in the various gifts and handicrafts as well as other goods. The Kidwelly Castle is a well-preserved, defensive castle and an example of the powerful fortresses built in the ancient era. Guided tours are available for the visitors and the place is beaming with tourists during the summer months.

Overall Guide : Pleasant town with a small museum and the usual shops and cafes, etc. Would visit again but only worth a days visit.
Overall rating 6
Overall Guide : Thriving busy town with character. More welsh restaurants maybe to support the wonderful local produce.
