Lying on the river Tywi, Carmarthen is the county town of Carmarthenshire in Wales and is located approximately 30 miles from Swansea and 70 miles from Cardiff. The town was founded by the Romans and 1000 years later Carmarthen Castle, built by the Normans, became their regional capital. In the 19th century the development of the coal mining industry meant that growth moved away from Carmarthen to other areas in South Wales. The main industries in Carmarthen today are agriculture, fishing, forestry and tourism. The town is within easy reach of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast as well as many other visitor attractions including the Dylan Thomas Boathouse in Laugharne, Kidwelly Castle, the National Wool Museum and the Dolaucothi Gold Mines.
