Welcome to Llanwrtyd & District Heritage and Arts Centre.
The Centre lets visitors explore the history of this unique Mid-Wales town and wander round an art gallery.
Both are housed in a delightfully converted 19th century Congregational Chapel.
Llanwrtyd was once described as “consisting of one-storey thatched cottages having a couple of rooms and an attic window about the size of Mr Pickwick’s spectacles”.
Then its fortunes changed dramatically with the discovery of “the finest sulphur spring in the kingdom” – and the arrival of the railway line.
Since then – for over two hundred years – the town has been welcoming visitors.
They came to “take the waters” and enjoy the towns’ many attractions. Nowadays it attracts pony trekkers, walkers and mountain bikers.
All come to experience the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside.
Entrance to the Centre & Art Gallery is free and is accessible to all.
