The Lyric lies in the old part of Carmarthen town on King Street within walking distance of car parks, the bus station and the train station. King Street is very easy to find when you get to Carmarthen however the Lyric doesn’t give its location away to easily. The frontage of the Lyric is masked by the big beautiful buildings but you will see a small canopy that juts out and that’s where we are. But don’t be fooled, when you get inside it’s a little bit like Dr Who’s Tardis. Below you will see some additional information on how to get to the Lyric:
