The town of Merthyr Tydfil is located in Wales and has a population of around 30,000 people. The local population refers to Merthyr Tydfil as simply Merthyr. The area was settled in around 1000BCE by the Celts. There are artifacts that date it back to that date and also show that it was occupied during the Iron Age and Roman areas. Because of its rich history there are lots to see.

For the nature lover there is an endless choice of walking trails. You can choose from challenging and gentle routes. If you are looking for something to take up most of your day then you can take the Taff Trail which links the capital city of Cardiff to the historic market town of Brecon. If you want to learn more about the countryside then take a walk on any one of the heritage trails that wander through the town. You will see many interesting historic sites and places of interest. If you aren't sure which of the trails to take then you just need to ramble over to the Merthyr Tydfil's Ramblers Association they can help you arrange a your walk or even help you with one of their guided walks through the area.

It is home to an extensive collection of art which include Wedgwood, Nantgarw and Swansea porcelain.

Another great stop is Joseph Parry's Cottage. This cottage is a great example of a typical ironworker's cottage. It was built in the 1820s for the workers of Cyfarthfa Ironworks and became the birthplace of one of Wales best known composer, Joseph Parry. Here you can tour the interior of the cottage and see how the ironworkers lived in the 1840's, around the time Mr. Parry would have been a small boy.
