Staying in the Area

You can really make the most of your leisure time while you’re with us here at The Lyric, Carmarthen.

Carmarthen is the oldest town in Wales has evolved around its sturdy Roman defences with a rich blend of modernity woven into its mystical and gladiatorial heritage. Just strides away from the Roman ramparts sitting majestically over the serene River Towy, coursing like a silver ribbon down arguable one of Wales’s most beautiful valleys, is the ultra modern St Catherine’s Walk. It boasts all the top shops and retailers behind glitzy glass emporiums and yet round every corner you can slip down historic streets sprinkled with the dust of days of yesteryear to stumble on retro and chintzy bijou shopping opportunities selling everything from cheeses to fashions and fine wines. As well as the new shopping centre, Carmarthen Market has been restyles and relocated to jigsaw old with new and it is a great place to browse local produce such as Carmarthen Ham and locally caught cockles.

There are many attractions for you to visit whilst staying in the area such as the Gwili Railway, the picturesque town of Laugharne where you will be able to visit Dylan Thomas’ boat house and the lovely Llansteffan beach and castle. If you would like to do something a little more energetic pop down to Carmarthen Leisure Centre where you can swim, run, sweat or whatever else you like to do in the gym. If you are willing to travel a little more afield you will find some great days out for the whole family in Folly Farm, Oakwood, Bluestone and if you haven’t been there before you must visit Tenby.
