Things to see and do in Carmarthenshire
Kidwelly is a mighty and imposing monument of Norman power. It is also a beautiful example of castle development, as the castle was dramatically altered on a number of occasions to conform to the latest thinking in military science. Roger, bishop of Salisbury, the justiciar of England, established Norman power in the area and the ringwork castle (shown below) that he built here was one of a series of strongholds designed by the Normans to secure the new conquests of south Wales by commanding the river passes here and at Laugharne, Llansteffan and Loughor.

Dolaucothi Gold Mines
These unique gold mines are set amid wooded hillsides overlooking the beautiful Cothi Valley. 2,000 years ago, the powerful Romans left behind a glimpse of gold-mining methods. The harsh mining environment continued in the 19th and 20th centuries, ending in 1938. Guided tours take you back to experience the conditions of the Roman, Victorian and 1930s underground workings. See and hear the 1930s mine and mine machinery. Have a go at gold panning and take the opportunity to experience the frustrations of searching for real gold.
Dylan Thomas Boathouse
Dylan Thomas was one of the greatest writers from Wales and a giant in the 20th century. The most renowned in a school of Anglo-Welsh writers that flourished during that period. He made particular use of the, then, new mass media technologies of broadcasting and recording. Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea but his family roots were in Carmarthenshire and it was this county that provided him with a constant source of inspiration.
The famous Brechfa Forest now managed by the Forestry Commission for timber production and recreation, has a long history. In the middle ages the forest was mainly oak and ash and was an important Royal hunting ground, while until the 20th Century wood from the forest was harvested to fuel the industrial needs of South Wales. As well as playing its part in the industrial revolution, timber was taken from the forest during the First World War to produce naphtha for use in making explosives. In 1919 the Forestry Commission became managers of the forest, creating its present status as a multi-purpose forest for timber production, recreation and wildlife conservation.
