Carmarthen is a community and county town of Carmarthenshire, Wales, its location found on the River Tywi roughly eight miles north of its estuary in Carmarthen Bay. The population of Carmarthen has seen its ups and downs over the years dropping nearly 2,000 between 2001 and 2011 but then rising again up to 16,285 in 2019. Carmarthen is the oldest town in Wales its rich gladiatorial and mystical heritage interlaced with a blend of modernity. Once one of the most populous boroughs in Wales – between the 16th and 18th centuries – growth would slow by the mid-19th century as newer settlements popped up in South Wales.
Carmarthen is likely most well-known for two things, those being its and its Roman Heritage but also its connections to the Arthurian legends of Merlin. The Welsh name for Carmarthen is Caerfyrddin which translates to ‘Fort’ and ‘Myrddin’ (the English version of which is Merlin). It is claimed that Merlin the wizard was born in Carmarthen with the last piece of his Oak on display in the Carmarthenshire County Museum. Should anyone take it, legend has it the town will fall – so best leave it where it is. The museum is free to visit and houses a number of fascinating treasures including Roman gold, Egyptian artefacts and even mammoth bones.
Diving into the rich history of Carmarthen is what makes the town such an intriguing and fascinating visit. The Roman Amphitheatre is found just off Priory Street (although easy to miss). It’s the most westerly in the Roman Empire and one of only seven remaining in Britain not to mention the only example of Roman Carmarthen visible above ground today. Back in its prime, the amphitheatre would have played host to a number of events. These would have included sports such as contests between beast and humans, or gladiatorial combat as well as celebrations on religious holy days.
Carmarthen Castle is a ruined castle first built by Walter, Sheriff of Gloucester back in the early 1100s that once protected Carmarthen Bay. The castle was captured multiple times and then rebuilt using stone during the 1190s. Fast forward and the remains of the castle were awarded a Grade I heritage listing in 1954 where it now remains a tourist attraction as well as the site of the town’s Tourist Information Centre.
Moving away from history, Carmarthen caters to those after something a little more active in their day to day with Carmarthen Leisure Centre offering an eight-lane 25-meter swimming pool, courts for both squash and badminton, dance studio and a health and fitness club. Then you have Carmarthen Park, a beautiful location opened in 1900 and close to the town centre with children’s play areas and a skateboarding park. It also plays host to the very first velodrome in Wales and one of the few to remain in working condition. Carmarthen Indoor Market meanwhile delivers a more local feel to your shopping experience with Welsh language shops to local foods that include laver break, cockles and Carmarthen Ham.
