A seaside resort and good touring base. Attractions include large sandy beach and narrow-gauge Talyllyn Railway that travels deep into the hills (there’s a fascinating railway museum here too). 2015 is a very special year for the much-loved Talyllyn – it celebrates its 150th anniversary. Many local beauty spots – Ynysmaengwyn Park, Dolgoch Falls, Bird Rock, Llyn Myngul and Castell-y-Bere, atmospheric stronghold of the Welsh princes. Magic Lantern Cinema, a charming 19th-century building that retains its historic splendour, puts on an interesting show – in addition to mainstream and other films there’s music, comedy and poetry. The town’s quirky claims to fame also include its mighty ‘Tywyn Wurlitzer’ and ‘Race the Train
From the rolling hills and mountains to the tranquil golden beach front and stunning sunsets, the Cardigan Bay Coastline is known across the World for its vast beauty – and Tywyn, right in the heart of Wales where the mountains meet the sea, is no exception.
The Wales Coastal Path runs right through the town and onto the Blue Flag Award beach, and affords views to take your breath away, while the promenade is the perfect place for dolphin spotting! On a clear day you can see up the coast with amazing views towards Bardsey Island & Pwllheli on the Lleyn Peninsula and South towards Fishguard, Aberporth & Aberystwyth.
Families have a huge choice of attractions and events that will create lasting memories. And at the end of the day, head out to a pub or restaurant to sample the finest Welsh food and drink and to recount the day’s events.
When you can no longer keep your eyes open, find the perfect accommodation; a seaside B&B,cosy self-catering cottage or the popular caravan parks, knowing that in the morning you can do it all over again.
