Machynlleth: The ancient market town of Machynlleth with its interesting shops, watering holes and historic buildings is worth a visit.
Machynlleth is the heart of Wales, both geographically and culturally. Owain Glyndwr held the last Welsh parliament here in 1404. It is well placed for visits to castles, nature reserves and sandy beaches, country craft centres and narrow gauge railways. Nearby are the Centre of Alternative Technology, the National Library of Wales and the sailing centre of Aberdyfi.
Dolgellau is a small market town situated at the foot of the Cader Idris mountain range in south Snowdonia. Dolgellau is best known as an area for quiet outdoor recreation, we have all the scenery, the mountains, forests, waterfalls and beaches, close to hand, but without the crowds.
Visit Powis Castle with its "Clive of India" Museum and the renowned "Hanging Gardens". Also the Welshpool and Llanfair Narrow Gauge Steam Railway which runs through the Banwy Valley. Nearby is the delightful town of Montgomery, which is steeped in history with its ruined Castle, set high above the town.
Other places of interest include the Centre for Alternative Energy, Machinations, Corris Craft Centre and King Arthurs Labyrinth. Corris Mine Explorers allows you to explore the virtually untouched abandoned workings of the old Braich Goch slate mine with one of Wales' top Mine Explorers.
