Things to Do & Attractions in Mid Wales

Plas Talgarth

This remarkable region includes southern Eryri (Snowdonia) and the counties of Gwynedd, North Powys, and Ceredigion, each distinctive in their own unique way.

The sweeping sandy beaches at Aberdyfi (Aberdovey), Tywyn and Barmouth are obvious attractions, but the area’s varied terrain also includes high peat moorland, sand dunes, woodland and forest, farmland and lowland peat bog, which provides a haven for wildlife and mile upon mile of countryside for visitors to roam.

With splendid castles, magnificent nature reserves and lakes, historic railways and much more to explore, there’s something incredible to see all year round.
